How locked up is your house?

How careful are you with locking doors, gates, etc? Do you lock your doors during the day? Just at night? If your yard is fenced, is it locked?

Re: How locked up is your house?

  • We lock our doors at night, and try to remember to when we're leaving the house but it doesn't always happen.

    My parents live about 5 minutes away, they don't own keys to their house. It hasn't been locked in the 20 years they've lived there, ev

  • Doors are locked at all times.  Back gate is locked.  We have an alarm system that gets turned on when we leave and at night.

    We live in a big city.

  • Cars are locked, house doors are locked, shed is locked, garage door is shut (unless I'm in the front yard with the kids) -- all the time. We don't have a fence.

  • Since we don't usually go out the front door it's usually locked.  Although in the spring and fall its just the screen door.  We never lock the door to the garage, but we mostly keep the garage door shut.  The sliding glass door remains

  • I grew up in a very tightly locked up house. My mom made my dad do door and window checks every night and everything was always locked. This came from my mom's experience as a rape victim. Eek. 

    My husband on the other hand grew up in a hous

  • We keep it pretty well locked up all the time- first floor doors and windows locked, gates locked, garage doors closed. I cannot imagine leaving my house for a week and not locking it up!

  • All doors and windows are locked unless I want to open one to let a breeze in. All 3 of our back gates and the storage shed are also locked at all times. I'm not paranoid or anything...

  • My door is always locked. I often have the alarm on during the day. About a year ago someone stole a bunch of bikes out of my garage while I was home. It freaked me out.

  • Unless I have the windows open on a nice day, everything is locked all the time. I live in a safe area, but don't want to make it easy for someone to try a crime of opportunity.
  • Oh yeah, we do leave the door from the garage into the house unlocked. Our theory with that is that if someone gets into the garage, all they have to do is close the gagage door and then they have all the time in the world to break into the house unn

  • Front/back door locked.  Garage door is usually closed.

    Alarm is set at night.


  • The front door is always locked because we don't use it. The only time I open it is to check the mail.

    The back door used to always, always be unlocked. Even if we went away for the weekend or longer. Our windows are 100 years old, literally,

  • Fact that Sort of related, did you know that if your windows are closed you should always keep them locked so when the house settles the windows stay aligned?

  • Our cars are always locked and empty because I'm paranoid.

    Our house is always locked whether we're in or out because DS is a runner. He figured out how to let himself out, so I got chains for the doors that should take him a while to figure out

  • Here is a story for you guys.

    My grandma's house was once broken into, and the guy came through the kitchen window (and right into the sink full of dishes) . Thankfully my crazy aunt was there and she came walking into the kitchen with a shotgun i

  • The front door and downstairs windows are always locked, but we leave the back patio door unlocked during the day. The back deck is more like a balcony, so it would be pretty hard to get in that way. We also keep our cars locked at all times.

  • We live in a really safe, rural area. I have little to no fear of a break in, so we lock the doors at night out of habit, or when we're out of town, but during the day they're never locked. I rarely check windows, and the backyard is gated but there's no

  • We have deadbolts on both doors, and locks on both storm doors. If it's nice, I leave the regular door open but lock the storm door, otherwise, the doors are locked day, night, when we're out. Our yard has a 6-foot privacy fence that has self-closing g
