Secure your gate

Most break-ins happen through gates that are not secured correctly by installer.

Even heavy gates can be lifted with one hand and a crowbar:

If there is space, the guide can be broken off

or bent, so the gate is loose.

Install anti-lift where the gates closes (in front) and at the rear.

Pin in the front part at the bottom that locks in thick metal plate when gate closes:

Anti-lift in the front at the top. Should check that the play is not too much:

Gaps between gate and motor guide should be covered so that a crowbar can't fit:

Lastly there shouldn't be big gaps near the gate motor:

The gate motor should be in cage and out of sight:
