West Auckland Home Stays Intact


A West Auckland resident encountered a near home invasion when a burglar attempted to enter their home located on Luckens Road.

The intruder managed to snap off both window handles on a window located at the rear of the house before attempting to break the window stays. It is suspected the burglar used a small screwdriver to forcefully twist the window stay multiple times until becoming warped.

Fortunately, the P1097 Safety Stay installed by Western Lock Services, remained intact and prevented the intruder from entering the house. It appears the intruder gave up after a final attempt at removing the window stay proved unsuccessful.

The resident was not home at the time and did not immediately notice the damage until realising a window had been left slightly ajar. The resident claims to have had many attempted break-ins yet all have proven unsuccessful due to the installation of their door and window hardware.
