A locksmith understands that deadbolt locks and sophisticated security systems can only go so far in preventing a burglary. Some of the complex security systems can be defeated by “Stone age technology”, quite literally. A big enough stone thrown at a window will shatter it and enable a burglar to get inside. If you don’t have a home safe a thief can easily grab your valuables and get out before law enforcement agents arrive.
For a more discreet burglar time is always of the essence. A strong door design, high-security lock and a good security system is going to make it harder for a criminal to swiftly move through your property. When they finally get inside all they want to do is grab something small and portable which can quickly be turned into cash. A home safe is a major roadblock for a thief and it can become a central part of a homeowner’s security system.
Safe cracking is not something which can be done with a brick, a hammer, or a rock. It is a time-consuming technique which a robber cannot learn in minutes. The equipment for safe cracking is hard to get, expensive and heavy to carry.
Many locksmiths and law enforcement agents see safe cracking as a lost art. Modern day safes have became virtually impregnable. They are equipped with glass, aluminum, steel, titanium, and a whole host of protective materials to prevent someone from drilling inside.
Most modern safe crackers can usually break into a safe only if they can carry it away first and work on it later at their hideout. And even then, in an attempt to open the safe, they risk ruining the items they are trying to get their hands on.
Home safety is a multi pronged pursuit. A good deadbolt lock and home alarm system will provide protection. However, if you couple that with a home safe chances to protect your valuables are greatly increased.
