The letterbox through your street door or external wall is a point of vulnerability that is often overlooked.

It offers a simple access point for an arson attack and in fact many UK building fires are started every year by arsonists posting some form of ignited combustable material through the letterbox.

Approaching November 5th, there is the risk of fireworks being posted through the letterbox, which can of course cause significant damage.

The letterbox is also where those with a grievance or grudge against the occupiers of the building, often choose to make their feelings known anonymously by posting unwanted or unpleasant material through it.

At Insight Security we offer various products to help protect the letterbox against unwelcome use, often working with Police involved with the witness protection programme, who are well aware of the risks and opportunities the letterbox poses.

Facing the risk of misuse by pupils or vandals, many schools have permanently sealed their traditional letterboxes and installed a freestanding letterbox outside of their building, whilst many organisations involved with sensitive activities have taken a similar approach, to protect their premises against the possible threat from various action groups.

For homeowners, the through the door letterbox offers a number of vulnerabilities, which in addition to those mentioned above, include burglars peering through the letterbox to see if anyone is at home, or if the property looks worth breaking in to.

Another crime committed frequently through the letterbox is the fishing attack, whereby a person uses a stick and hook or other implement to grab a bunch of house keys or car keys off of an adjacent shelf or hall table, which can then be used to enter the home, or steal the car parked on the driveway. 

The letterbox is also a direct source of expense for homeowners as the cold draft entering their home through it, often leads to the heating being turned up, which is the last thing you need given the high cost of energy that we are all facing. 

With all the potential issues associated with it, it`s hardly surprising that the through the door letterbox is almost non existent with our more savvy continental neighbours, who favour the use of the outdoor post box, or at least fit some form of mail catcher / draft excluder over the inside of any through the door letterbox.
