It may sound dumb to remove the screws from your front door, but doing that might just save your life.

Read on to find out why burglars everywhere are livid that their secret to breaking into houses is finally out!

It’s been years since Mariana Harrison moved into her first apartment, but one piece of fatherly advice has stayed with her ever since.

Harrison, who’s a real estate agent in Texas, says the latch in most front doors typically have screws that are only ‘half an inch long’ and easily fall out with one kick by a burglar.

However, she says her dad replaced them with 4-inch screws, making it near impossible for anyone to kick her door in.
