A staggering amount of insurance claims are being lodged for stolen cars, and guess what? They haven’t been hotwired. The thieves have simply put the keys in the ignition and driven away – easy peasy!
The Easiest Way To Steal A Car
Are you wondering how it’s done? Simply by breaking into your home and taking your car keys from the table in the hallway, the hook next to the door, the bowl on top of the fridge, or your handbag sitting on the kitchen counter…
With advancements in car security, it’s no longer possible for thieves to hot wire new cars. Thieves are becoming frustrated with the high-tech, car security of today, and are looking for an easier way to drive away in your car. The easiest way is now to break into your home, take your car keys and driving away; no smashing of windows, jimmying of car doors or fiddling with wires required.
When Your Home Security Fails
Even though you may feel relaxed in your own home, it is not a place to become relaxed about your security. Did you know that approximately 42 per cent of vehicles stolen in New South Wales are taken from private dwellings? It’s a pretty frightening statistic.
Some Australian celebrities have even fallen prey to the new tactics of car thieves. NRL star Braith Anasta, had his Lexus IS 350 Sports stolen after thieves broke into his home whilst he was inside. Actress, Sophie Lee, also had her Porsche stolen after her keys were taken from her home in Sydney, New South Wales.
The most basic step to help keep thieves from accessing your car keys in your home, is to ensure that you keep your doors and windows locked whether you are at home or not. Unfortunately, your average doors and windows can easily be infiltrated, as can your average security screen.
Outsmarting Criminals With Crimsafe Security
Davcon Security Screens recommends installing Crimsafe security doors and windows, as they provide serious protection to your home. This is because Crimsafe is the only security screen product in Australia where the mesh is screwed into the frame and clamped down with a patented device called the “Screw-Clamp™ “. Most other security screen mesh systems sold in Australia are held in place with a wedge forced in under pressure, or are simply glued in.
Crimsafe leads the industry passing and outperforming most other competing security screens in the following tests:
- Exceeds security screen impact levels, withstanding a singular impact of up to 1200 joules of energy
- Attained 3000 hours in the 1000hr Salt Spray Test with no sign of corrosion, no loss of adhesion and no blistering
- 44m/s windborne cyclonic debris screening
