Try TikTok's Coffee Mug Hack To Help Keep Your Home Safe At Night
Given how expensive security systems are, installing one may not be an option for everyone. Luckily, you can use a coffee mug to help you stay safe and vigilant at night.
The trick is to place the mug on your front door’s inside handle after locking it. If someone tries to get in, the mug will fall off, scaring them away and alerting you in the process.
Highlighted by TikTok user @richardoooo6, this hack only works on regular door handles and not on the ones with a horizontal locking mechanism or doorknobs.
