Hang a china mug on your door handle to catch out night time burglars

One simple way to alert yourself to night time burglars is to hang a china mug on your door handle. This may sound strange, but it’s an effective way to keep yourself safe while you’re sleeping.

The reason this works is that any attempt to open the door will cause the mug to fall and break, creating a loud noise. This would easily wake you up and alert you to the break-in, potentially dissuading the burglar from attempting to get in.

Not only is this an affordable and easy-to-implement tip, but it also serves as a reminder to take safety precautions seriously. While we all hope to avoid burglaries, it’s important to have a plan in place in case the worst happens.

Remember to never confront the burglar yourself, but rather call the police immediately. Stay safe and vigilant, and never underestimate the power of simple solutions like hanging a china mug on your door handle.
