You have probably experienced the paranoia of spending the night in a hotel or an apartment ( perhaps even at your own house) of not being entirely safe? Whether it’s a ramshackle door that can’t lock properly and make you feel secure or strange noises from the neighbors or street that you can’t recognize.
Those who live alone mostly have this fear of someone breaking into their home late at night when you’re sleeping soundly in your bed. Well, next time you’re jumpy about drifting off to dreamland without any protection, remember of this easy, useful trick.
The trick involves placing one glass over the door handle or knob, and a second one on top. Use whatever size glass makes sense for the particular handle.
Now, if someone tries to open the door from the other side, both glasses will fall to the floor. The noise will not only wake you up but also frighten most intruders away!
The advantages of this alarm system speak for themselves: glasses are always available — whether you’re at a hotel or anywhere else. It’s also easy to prepare and very effective. The only hitch is: if someone does open the door, you could end up with lots of glass shards on the floor and two fewer glasses… Though in comparison to what a real burglar could achieve, that doesn’t seem that bad!
