Woman Warns Everyone To Remove Screws From Doors - Here’s Why

A woman posted on Facebook about some advice her dad gave her once. The little tip is not something most people would think of doing, but in an emergency, it might be the difference between life and death.

Mariana Harrison, a real estate agent in Texas, says her dad taught her something when she moved into her first apartment. The idea was simply brilliant, and she continues to put the advice to good use to this day. She hopes that the advice might benefit others.

Her father came over and removed the screws from her door, and substituted his own.

"Most contractors install the plates with the supplied screws which are only a half inch long and come out with one kick by a burglar," Harrison explained. "He installed 4 inch screws in their place that go through the door frame and into the framing of the house. They can kick for a long time before they get tired!"

The 4-inch screws would give a resident plenty of time to arm herself, or escape. Most likely, though, the intruder would give up trying to break down the door pretty quickly. It would take so long and make so much noise, he would wake up the whole neighborhood before he got in.

Now that is a life hack that could really save your life.
