It is possible for homeowners to  have all kinds of great locks but to still have thieves simply kick in the doors to break in. That’s partly because cheap 1½-inch screws were used on hinges, door latches and strike plates when the house was built. To Prevent this remove all those screws and replace them with 3-inch to 3½-inch screws. That will anchor the door to the surrounding framing and the structural part of your house, thus making it much tougher to crash through the door. Desert Locksmiths can help with this.
