Protect Yourself & Your Vehicle Ensuring the Car is Locked Properly

11/12/2013 Back To Blog

People tend to be forgetful sometimes. When you get out of the house, you typically forget if you turned off all electrical appliances inside. When preparing for a day at the office, you usually forget where you left your car or home keys. What’s even worse is when you forget that your car keys are inside the vehicle that is already locked. If you don’t have a backup, it is pretty difficult to get out of such a situation.

An opposite scenario is getting out of the car without making sure that it is indeed locked. If you forget to do so, your vehicle will be a target of thieves. To prevent this from happening, there are actually things that you can do to make sure that your car is properly locked. Take a look at the following list:

The first rule is simple: always double check

When you forget to lock your car, you are eliminating that barrier between your vehicle and car thieves. You naturally would not want this to happen because cars are the second biggest investments that people make, next to their homes. So the number one rule that you should follow is to always double check. If you don’t already have a car key duplicate, have one made by a professional in locksmith Malibu. Leave it at home or in the care of someone you trust, so you will have that backup in case you accidentally get locked out of your car.

Never assume that your remote-controlled car locks worked

If you have a remote-controlled car lock, make sure that it worked. With one press of a button, you can easily lock your car so why not take the extra step in making sure that the doors are indeed locked? If you can’t open the door and the lights of the car are off, it means that the locking mechanism has clicked on.

Use a garage door remote control

Finally, use a garage door remote control. Even in locked garages, it is still possible for your car to get stolen through forced entry.

By following these tips, you can protect yourself and your vehicle from possible car thieves.
