Halloween & Yard Decor is expensive and does, on occasion, get stolen from peoples yards, here are some tips for you to help keep that from happening.
This weekend while you are putting up and out all those cool, scary ghosts and goblins add some simple inexpensive theft resistant security measures.
First, LIGHTING! Add extra lighting or if you can automatic flood lights that are motion activated. They pop on when anyone comes into your yard, this is a great deterrent.
Second, STAKES AND FISHING LINE. Inexpensive, weather resistant, lightweight and invisible, fishing line can be tied around or too decorations and secured in the ground by stakes, (spiraled are the best stakes but camping ones are great too) and fishing line can help secure hanging decor.
Third, the Dollar Store here in town stocks small "window/door" ALARMS that can be attached to large STABLE items, (this won't work for blow up items since they move to much) but you can attach one end to the item such as a headstone and the other to the stake or wood you use to secure it in the ground so if someone removes the item an alarm sounds.
Finally, add your name and phone # to the inside or underside of your decorations so that if they are located we can return them to you. Take photo's of your items so that if something does go missing you can post on social media for neighbors to look out for your items.
