I will be so glad when the ice is all gone! This took almost an hour to get unstuck and I had to reschedule the service call. I started sliding backwards about where I am taking the picture. The driveway is steeper than it looks in the picture but we are looking at the top of the van. This week I had to tell two people there was no way I could get to their place due to icy roads in the outlying areas. One call was right during the largest snow fall. I'm sorry about that. The good news is I had far fewer calls with locked and running cars this year. Just remember, it sounds like a good idea to start your car, lock the door and take the remote with you to warm up the car. But by design, the remotes are disabled when the engine is running. This prevents the doors from accidentally unlocking while going down the road.

Needless to say, I am not a fan of pet doors. Crooks like them though. This image is off of Google, but as you can see a person can reach up and unlock the door. I have done this for people that have locked themselves out. If you must have a pet door, make sure it is small enough for your pet to barely get through. They are best installed in a wall and not a door, but this does cost more to do. A deadbolt installed higher up the door is a decent alternative as is a double sided deadbolt (key on both sides, like the one in the picture). Just be warned that double sided deadbolt can be a hazard if the door is locked and you have a real emergency like a fire!

KING 5 news sent a 17 question survey to 86 inmates. Their answers may surprise you. Question number 1's answer: "Most inmates broke in through an unlocked door or window. Several burglars kicked the door open." I have posted before about locking your doors and about using long screws in hinges and strike plates.
What burglars said were the biggest deterrents, what didn't stop them and how you can protect your home.

Does your key-chain look like this? Did you know all of that weight on your cars ignition switch is bad? Not to mention what it does to your pocket. This article at Lifehacker offers some good advice on minimizing your keys. http://lifehacker.com/four-ways-to-minimize-your-keychain-1602026503 But in a nutshell, I always recommend no more than 4 keys on your cars keyring. Mine has 3, van, home and shop. For the other cars in the house, the only keys are for the car and home. We just grab the ring we need when leaving the house. Extra key rings are cheap, replacing an ignition on your car is not!

More often than I like to see, a home deadbolt is installed incorrectly. The most common problem is the strike hole is not deep enough for the bolt to extend fully. The hole needs to be at a minimum 1" deep. Try this at home. With your door open, partially extend your deadbolt and then push it back in with your finger. Now extend it fully and try to push it in. When it is fully extended, the bolt is "dead", meaning it cannot be pushed back. A knife blade can work a partially extended bolt back in the door. The second most common issue is the strike plate screws are too short. They need to be long enough to go through the door frame and into the wall studs. Most residential deadbolts sold in stores come with 2" screws. That may be long enough, but not always. A 3" screw is best to make sure you get to the stud. The 3/4" cover screws I have found on some models sold at the discount box stores were the only screws included to save the manufacturer money. It is also a good idea to replace a couple of the screws on each hinge with the same 3" screws for the same reason. This helps strengthen the door from a potential kick. These are some of the issues I look for when I am re-keying a home or business.
