It may come as no surprise, but the summer season is the time of year when most burglaries and break-ins happen. For this reason, we at Champion Lock & Safe Company want to share some safety tips for maximum home security.

These tips include closing windows and doors before leaving the house, inspecting locks regularly, installing a better lock system, and storing expensive possessions in a vault or safe. Read on to learn more.

1. Be Mindful of Your Doors and Windows

In the summertime, it's common to crack open a window to let some fresh air in, but you should never leave your windows open when you leave the house. The same goes for leaving your doors unlocked.

If you're going from inside to outside frequently, it can be easy to forget to lock the door. Try to be mindful of these habits and limit doing them when you're home so that you don't make the mistake of leaving your house vulnerable to theft.

2. Make Sure Your Locks Work Well

It's crucial to have someone check your locks now and again to make sure they're functioning as they should, especially if you have a side entrance you don't use routinely.

Can you remember the last time you had a lock inspection? If the answer is no, you might want to consider giving our locksmiths a call. We'll do a quick sweep of your property and report back to you about what we found.

3. Upgrade Your Lock System

Maybe your existing locks did the trick a decade or two ago, but this might no longer be the case. Older homes with outdated lock systems are more susceptible to break-ins.

At Champion Lock & Safe Company, we have an extensive catalog of lock and key solutions that we can tailor to you. Whether you're interested in a keyless entry system, or heavy-duty door locks, we make sure to set you up with a system that works for your needs and budget.

4. Secure Your Valuables in a Safe

Don't leave your valuable possessions lying out in the open. If someone breaks into your home, these items will be what they look for first.

Take extra precaution and secure everything within one of our state-of-the-art safety vaults. We carry a broad range of safe options ranging from lock and key to electronic keypad. If you choose a lock and key system, keep the key on you when you leave the property. On the other hand, if you go with a keypad, make sure it's not a predictable combination like "1-2-3-4."
