      I see one where they used a scissors jack and simply jacked it outa d welding---it is a deterrent not burglar proof.

      I also am advised that once you head can pass you body can.
      Truth does not depend on a consensus of opinion.

      “I suspect that they are also different from you. See the mystery that is each one of them. Reverence them even as you seek to engage them. Find in yourself the courage, the faithfulness, never to give up on anyone who is given to you as mentor and friend,”

      in addition, 'burglar proofing' are being made cheaper these days by welders - more spaced out and with cheaper material. e.g i've seen a lot of houses where it was made using 'flat iron'- you just need to cut one end and bend it back to create an opening. Long ago, burglar proofing was made with materials thick enough that required a bolt-cutter and the designs were such that you have to cut more than one end to create a space large enough to pass through. Nowadays you can cut them with a galvanize knife or a plyers.

      As i mentioned 'long ago', i remember stories from my grandparents about long long ago when there was no such thing as burglar proof in houses and they used to sleep with the doors open.
      I wanted to ask God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

      Head could fit through the space easy. If the shoulders and hip can angle well enough to get through the opening then that's that.

      As has been indicated, it's just a deterrent.

      All that size does is .... .slow them down..... however when you are not at home....then they have all the time in the world.

      in my opinion..... what I saw in some homes in St. James was more effective burglar proofing:

      HELP ON THE WAY: Minister of the People and Social Development, Dr Glenn Ramadharsingh, greets Sally-Ann Rampersad, the wife of Sea Lots accident victim, Ryan Rampersad, when he paid a visit to Rampersad's Sea Lots home. Social workers also presented her with a food card and hamper.

      Not really , pay attention to the type of lock, it is the weakest point , once you get a piece of flat metal in between you can open easily. The best lock for that is a hardened chain with a stainless padlock

      I tired tell ppl.

      Burglar proofing alone won't deter ole tief.

      U have 2 employ several methods of deterrent.

      Get some guns with teeth. 3 or 4 pothong 2 run round the yard.

      Ole tief fraid dog.

      if you have to pull chain and open 50 locks, doesnt that increase the amount of time you NOT in your safe house? So when they hold you up on the 5th lock and you help them at gunpoint to open the next 45, ent they still inside the house?

      U forget bout the dog Falcon. And the sign: Beware of dogs.

      And the 500 w security lights.
