It’s evident that prepping has gone mainstream, which is a good thing. When center-right political blogs like Ricochet and PJ Media publishing posts on the subject, you know prepping has gained newfound acceptance. One recent post deserves more attention since it represents actionable steps we can all take to make our homes more secure. This post talks about how to make your home a harder target and it’s worth a read. Here are some posts I have done on the subject that go into greater detail on some of those steps:
- Strengthening Door Jambs
- Improving Lock Hardware
- Installing Single-Side Deadbolts
- Hardening Entry Doors
- Securing Sliding Glass Doors
The goal isn’t to make one’s domicile into a suburban Fort Knox, that is neither feasible nor desirable. The objective is to make your house less attractive to a criminal so that he doesn’t target your house. Take the first steps now and see which of these actions you can take to harden your home.
