Did you know that door peepholes expose you to a security risk? There are actually people who have thought of using these peepholes to intrude on another person’s privacy. They do it by placing a tiny camera on the peephole. Before you know it, they already know what’s going on inside the room or house.

This is no rocket science - easy to make and inexpensive.

A friend of mine had first-hand experience with this. It was nasty. Because I was afraid I’d experience the same, I immediately looked for ideas on how we can cover our door peephole. The most ideal one we’ve found was this barn door cover which still allows us to use the peephole when needed. It’s a no-sweat DIY, and it assures you that the cover stays in place even after you’ve shut your door.
