Is the Door Locked?

Every time we went away, someone would have to check the back door to see if it were locked. I put four small pieces of reflective tape, one above, one below, and two on the toggle. Tape aligned, door locked.

 

If the four are in a straight line, it's locked. If the middle two are sideways, the door needs to be locked.

Tape not aligned, door not locked.
 

Now it's easy to tell when exiting the house door.

This is a great tip! Now I'm plotting how I can adapt it to myself. Thanks for the idea.
