The company has joined its sister brand, Yale, to create awareness relating to home security by providing a series of tips on how to keep safe, with topics including dark nights, door and window security, protecting your valuables, outdoor and home security.

Recent published statistics have shown that burglaries increase by up to 20% when the clocks change, making homeowners more vulnerable to attack if their home appears easy for criminals to enter.

Supporters of the initiative include ABLOY, Mul-T-Lock, Yale Door and Windows Solutions, Yale Security Point, Yale Door, Screwfix, Homebase, B&Q, The Lock Shop, Maplin, Huws Gray, CEF, Ongo, Locksmiths and MLA.
