$1.79. That's about how much it costs for a thief to get your key duplicated at any one of more than 30,000 hardware or 26,000 discount stores nationwide.

How did they get your key?
Ever given your key to a babysitter or petsitter?
How about a maid or cleaning service?
Or a parking lot attendant or valet?
How about your garage mechanic?

Even an unskilled thief can get a copy of your key made by writing down the code stamped on it —and it only takes moments. Locks provide no protection if others can copy your keys!

And how about the locks on your doors? If they are like most locks available at many retail stores, they have very limited combinations — meaning the chances of your neighbor's key fitting your door are as high as 1 in 50.

It could happen to you!

CONSIDER THESE FACTS

In 83% of all burglaries, the front door is compromised.

The chances of your house being burglarized are 1 in 6.

Houses on a corner suffer 40% of all break-ins. And you're more likely to be burglarized if you live close to a major thoroughfare, on a cul-de-sac or on a dead-end street.

If you just moved into your home and did not change your locks, you have no way of knowing who has a copy of your keys.

There are almost 3 million burglaries annually in the U.S. About 37% occur during the day, when entry by duplicate key is more likely.

The average loss in a residential burglary is $1,278.

Thieves often force the door in or pry it open. They also resort to physically attacking the lock by drilling, hammering, wrenching or sawing the bolt.

Safety Tip: Leave a light on, preferably on each floor, when you go out in the evening!
