Home burglaries increase in summer months

Home burglaries increase in summer months

As the long summer days are upon us, more and more of us are out and about enjoying the sunshine. Unfortunately, home burglaries also increase by 10% in the summer months. Unlocked or open windows helps the opportunistic burglar get in and out of your property without being noticed.

So, don’t be a victim! Just carry out a few little checks before you leave your property;

  • Close and lock all windows
  •  Secure all back doors
  • Close and lock all the gates around your property

Outdoor thefts, unsurprisingly increase in the summer months, with children’s toys and bikes and gardening tools the thief’s most popular items to steal*.

Capital Locksmiths are working with Yale, who have launched a security campaign, ‘Unlock Your Summer’ to ensure property owners know the risks of burglaries in the Summer months.

Capital Locksmiths are a stockist of Yale products and carry a huge range of Yale stock to increase your home security and protect your property all year round.
