Unique Tips for Staying Safe

  1. Never trust a door chain. Many homes and hotels utilize door chains as a way to safely lock doors. These should never be used exclusively as even amateur burglars can often remove locks with ease.
  2. Keep your car keys reachable from bed.  Many modern key fobs include a panic button. This will be useful if you hear an intruder in or around your home. Set off the alarm and most criminals will flee, fearing the alarm will call the police.
  3. Cover your eyehole.  Hotel doors often have eyeholes leading outside or into the hallway. Most one-way eyehole technology is not infallible. If you have an eyehole without a cover use tape or tissue paper to cover it.
  4. Set the home address on your phone or GPS to a business nearby. If someone steals your phone or car they will have access to all of your information and possibly your garage door remote. It is wise to set your home address as a business to avoid leading the thief directly to your home.
  5. Invest in a self-defense courseThe best way to stay safe in any situation is to be able to defend yourself.
