"Do not rely on chain latches as locks. They may give a false sense of security. They are easily kicked or pried loose. Install a double cylinder deadbolt -- 1-inch deadbolt and double cylinders with hardened cylinder guards.

"This lock must be used if glass is within 40 inches of the locking device. A single cylinder deadbolt may be used if there is no glass within 40 inches of the locking hardware. If the double cylinder deadbolt is locked when the house is occupied, a key should be left in the the inside keyhole as a means of fast exit incase of fire.

"Always remove the key when leaving home."
