When it comes to home or office security, the most obvious measures that people think of are things like door locks, deadbolt installation, alarm systems, and window latches. A comprehensive security plan for your family or workplace includes your mailbox lock. Your mailbox is where you receive your bank statements, credit cards, payments by check and even a new passport when you order one. Even your birthday and holiday greeting cards could contain sensitive information that could be used in a case of identity theft. In short, you should make sure your mailbox is as secure as the rest of your home or office!

Why You Need To Lock your Mailbox

While it may seem unlikely that someone would tamper with your mailbox, this occurrence is not so rare. Mailboxes are places where thieves can often find all sorts of valuable items and gain access to various kinds of secure information.

  • People may want to steal your mail- If there is anyone who may desire access to personal information about your life, they can often find it in your mailbox. Many people often receive bank account information, bills, credit card statements, or secure information from friends or work colleagues. Obviously the most likely person to break into your mailbox is someone wanting to steal from you or gain access to your home.
  • Wind, storms, and animals can cause mail to be removed from your mailbox- While this is a less prevalent occurrence, it does happen. Severe wind or small animals that climb like squirrels or raccoons may remove mail from your mailbox. Locks keep out not only people but animals too.
  • You may have valuables in your mailbox- If you are receiving sums of money or need your keys to be put into your mailbox, locks keep them more secure. If you are receiving an expensive package, your locks ensure that no one is able to remove it from the mailbox.

  • Previous homeowners or tenants - your home or apartment may have been home to many previous owners and each of them may have given a spare mailbox key to your neighbors or their friends. Make sure only you can access your sensitive mail by replacing your mailbox locks whenever you move home.

  • Gate locks- Consider gates that lock from the inside and offer the option of a latch or sliding bar that can be secured with a padlock. This is convenient for when you want the gate locked for long amounts of time, like when you go out of town.
  • Garage door security- There are many options on the market currently for garage door security. It is recommended that you not only have an automatically locking garage door, but an opening system in places like coded entry or smart remote system. The more advanced your opening system, the less likely your garage door will be forced open by outside signals.
  • Motion sensor lighting- Potential theft can be greatly reduced by the presence of motion sensor lighting. It is easily installed and very cost-effective.
  • Shed locks- Sheds are one of the most vulnerable places on most properties because they are often the least guarded, lacking alarm systems or cameras. They can be broken into at night when you are in your home with little detection. Heavy-duty locks are recommended for sheds and if you have a great number of valuables inside, it is worth considering extending your alarm system to that area.
  • Security cameras- Security cameras are a deterrent to theft and provide a certain amount of stored footage to viewing in the event that a break-in does occur. They have become more cost-effective over time because of the wide variety of types available.
  • Mailbox locks- In order to fully secure your mailbox, you must implement some sort of locking system. Below we will review this further.

Dave is great! He was punctual and professional. And after installing the new locks on all of our doors, he cleaned up after himself! The same cannot be said for the last service I hired… would definitely recommend and use again!

We live not too far from Chicago and I spend about a hour and a half to get to my office. Mornings are always in a hurry for me and a broken door would be the worst I could expect. However, this was exactly what happened. I had no time to lose and so I called 247 Ontime Locksmiths. The expert guy from Locksmiths could fix the problem and I could go to work.

My car door didn’t open at all. Just a phone call to 24/7 Local Locksmiths and in less than 15 minutes I could drive my car again! Good job!
