A person’s house is supposed to be their sanctuary, it’s the one place they should feel the most comfortable and safe in.  When that feeling of security is diminished by a threatening presence or occurrence, it can easily be lost forever. That’s part of the reason why we add to our sense of safety and security by installing home surveillance systems, alarms, special lighting, and locks on all the doors and windows.  We want to protect not only our stuff, but also our peace of mind.

Even with the latest and greatest gadgets, there’s always a chance that they could fail.  Plus, it seems that no matter what we do, criminals are always coming up with new ways to trick us and get past our defenses.  Such was the case for a Texas woman, Kim Fleming Cernigliaro, who had been home alone one day when someone started banging loudly at her front door.  

Since she wasn’t expecting anyone and was all by herself, she didn’t bother answering the door.  Plus, the person seemed to be pounding on it, which made her feel a little alarmed by the intensity.  However, she did peek a glance through a stained glass window near the door and saw that it was a man who she had never seen before.  

When the banging finally stopped Kim waited a good half hour before she opened the door.  What she found on the other side confused her, it was a rubber band fastened around her door handle.  Not knowing what this could be, she called the police to see if they knew anything about it or if similar occurrences had happened in the area.  When the cops heard her story, they immediately sent an officer over to her house.

Upon arrival, the cop told her that people all over town had reported similar cases of someone banging on their door only for them to find rubber bands on the handles afterwards.  The officer explained that when a homeowner answers and unlatches the door to open it, the rubber band props the latch open. This means that when the person looks to see who’s there, the criminal can easily push their way through and get inside.  Then, since the latch is being held open by the rubber band, it makes it impossible for the homeowner to close the door and lock it back up. 

Naturally, this news frightened Kim but it also made her more vigilant than ever.  She wanted to warn others of the possible danger and so she posted about it on Facebook to share what she’d learned.  In the end, while the incident did bother her, she didn’t let it get in the way of her peace of mind. Above all, she never answers the door when she’s alone, never has, never will.  After all, if someone really needs to reach you, they would call and announce or make themselves known to you.

This Lady Wraps A Rubber Band Through The Dashboard Vent Of Her Car. The Reason Is Brilliant

Few things are as distracting and dangerous as using a cell phone when you’re driving a car. They take the user’s focus and attention away from where it should be, on the road, and are to blame for thousands of auto-related accidents and fatalities every year. That’s why many states in the US and countries have banned the use of them while driving and made it an illegal offense.

However, the law doesn’t stop drivers from utilizing their phones, especially for navigational purposes. The paper maps of yesterday have been replaced by the mobile phone GPS systems of today. Lots of people would be lost without their cells directing them where to go, exactly when to turn, and how to avoid tolls or traffic.

If you’re going to use your phone then you may as well lessen the risks involved and have it close-by within your line of sight. That way you don’t have to take your eyes off the road for as long or look all over for it, thus reducing your overall level of distraction. The best way to keep it handy and nearby is via use of a cell phone holder and if you don’t have one, don’t sweat it, just check out this video from One Crazy House!

The creative solution seen here is an easy and affordable way to quickly rig up a cell phone holder. All you need is a sturdy rubber band and 5 seconds of time. Take the rubber band and stick one end of it through your car vent. Loop it around a vent slot so that you end up pulling the end out a different one that’s below it. To make this a lot easier you can use a screwdriver to catch the band, as shown in the video. Once it’s looped through the vent pull the two ends of the band out and place your phone in the open space between the dash and elastic. Adjust the rubber band towards both ends of the phone to form a snug fit that will hold it securely in place and you’re all set to go!

This is the most simple and effective way to create a smartphone holder for your car. Besides making life all the more easy, it will also make driving safer for you and your passengers, and who doesn’t want that?
