  2. Never hide spare keys under the doormat or in one of those “hide-a-key” disguised key keepers; any burglar who isn’t a complete moron already knows about such things and will be looking for them. A better option is to entrust a spare key to a neighbor, preferably one you have a good relationship with and you know to be trustworthy.

  3. If your locks are more than 10 years old or do not have a higher than average security rating, replace them. Getting locks pinned to match your existing key is no big deal, but changing your key from time to time is a good idea to, especially if you have ever left a spare with a friend, family member, babysitter or house sitter.
    Make sure your locks have some steel pins for drill resistance, as well as some pick resistant security pins. It is also important to ensure that you are using the deepest screws possible for the box or strike plate (the part on the door frame). This may not be the screws that come with the lock itself, but the longer you can fit in the frame, the more kick resistant your door.

    If you have family members you are concerned about that refuse to change their locks, I had the same problem with my parents. I finally came over and picked their back door with a pair of paperclips which convinced them. I am by no means a skilled picker. Back then, all I had was a crash course on YouTube and about 30 minutes of practice on an old padlock. Their door was easier.

  4. *say I am on vacation, let my newspapers build up, leave the doors unlocked; and sit in my bedroom with my guns waiting to be the next hero of the second amendment.*
