What are Latch Guards?
The latch of a door is a common part attacked by burglars when they try to break in. It attached the door with a spring loaded mechanism to keep it secure and locked. However, when a burglar attacks this part of the door, they can get the latch to release and the door will open.
With the right latch guard, you won't have to worry. When one of our technicians installs a latch guard, burglars cannot use any type of tool to get the door open through the latching mechanism. Instead, they are blocked from getting into the building. In addition, latch guards act as a deterrent.
The only requirement to have a latch guard installed is a door. Our professional team can install latch guards on any type of door, no matter the shape or size.
Installing Other Guards
Along with latch guards, we also install knob and lever guards. Knob guards help to keep the knob of your door from being pried or wrenched off. Lever guards actually match the knob guard and go over the lever of the door instead of the knob. The lever will need to be a cut-off style to fit. With a lever or knob guard, you can add additional security to most doors.
At The Professional Locksmith, we do everything we can to ensure you gain better security with entry doors. Call us today and find out if a latch guard is the right option for you.
