Pro Tips for DIY Burglar Bar Installation

With the right tools, you can install your own burglar bars; Wonderbars shows you how.

No matter the reason for wanting them, burglar bars are a simple, low-tech home security solution for the every-day man and most of these men prefer to do the installation themselves. In this blog, Wonderbars will give you professional tips for the DIY installation of burglar bars.

Burglar bars act as a deterrent for burglars and therefore offer a sense of relief and safety, but that is not all they do. They are an effective method of establishing high safety measures for homeowners in South Africa, and there are a variety of benefits from having them. They keep toddlers from climbing out of windows and neighbouring visitors in the form of monkeys and the likes from entering through the kitchen window.

Get the Correct Measurements

If you are installing your own burglar bars it is essential that you measure your windows correctly. Do not measure the window itself. Instead, measure between the inside edges of the frame of the window. To measure accurately note the following:

  • HEIGHT: From the inside top to the inside bottom of the frame.
  • WIDTH: From the inside left to the inside bottom right of the frame.

This is the first tip because it is the most important. We cannot stress this enough, ensure your measurements are correct.

Consider Your Needs

There are different types of burglar guards available depending on the security risk in your area. Choose the product that will optimise your security and service all your needs, from the reason you require them to what you are trying to keep in or out.

Go for Aesthetic Appeal

We know this matters. Installing security products to protect yourself and your family, does not mean you need to sacrifice the aesthetic of your home in order to do so. We have a variety of options which do not just protect but also compliment the windows they are adorning. From clear to colourful for both wood and aluminium windows.

Install Them Inside

The crucial safety release mechanism installs between the bar and the anchor point in the wall. When you install the bars on the exterior of your home, it puts the safety mechanism in reach of anyone passing by. Always install your burglar bars on this inside.
