A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Fitting Security/Hinge Bolts

information on washin machines and dishwashers
Security bolts or hinge bolts are fitted close to each hinge. They cost about a fiver and they stop bad lads taking a crowbar and forcing the door open by annihilating the hinges. Well they certainly delay the process anyway but the door might need a lick of paint after his attempt!

Security bolts can be fitted with the door in place and he will be gone in an hour (the fitter I’m talking about, the bad lad will be round the back of your neighbours, negotiating her cat flap).
