Watch out for those small openings

When I first started improving my home security, I just assumed my basement windows were too small for anyone to fit through. That is, until I watched that video.

The opening that man fits through is the size of a standard piece of paper–8.5 by 11 inches!

The important thing to remember here is that prison bars are spaced roughly 4.75″ apart from each other. If you’ve got a gap any larger than that just assume that there’s someone out there who could fit through it, and act accordingly! For me, this meant some DIY window bars on my basement windows.

(More on that in an upcoming post!)
