Is there any solution available to dissolve the Super glue and to make my life easier.

asked May 13, 2018 in Housing by Zainab
There is a person putting Super glue on my door key hole, and I am frequently having to change the door key hole lock. I believe he is a stalker and does this to get recognized, I planed to put up surveillance camera but my Haris is not allowing.
Please help for a solution.

Please put a surveillance camera ASAP!

Don't panic!

1) why is the haris not allowing you to put a security camera? Worst case you can always get something like the Ring video doorbell. You can set it to send you a picture when motion is detected and it works with batteries so you don't need the haris permission to put it on your door https://ring.com/video-doorbell

2) does super glue even stick to the door key hole? I'd imagine you should be able to just peel it off or break the super glue into pieces.

3) if you do a google search for on how to remove super glue you'll find a ton of resources

Thank you Mark,
Even if I get the person recognized with a camera I dont know what to do further.

I have already changed my lock around 5 times, once 2 twice in same week. Since from outside if Super GLue is put inside the Keyhole. Then that's it no option but to change the lock, its like sealed nothing will go inside after that.

I searched google and found GOOF OFF a Super glue remover from Internet but its not available in Kuwait bakala i searched few shops in Fahaheel.  My worry is that if nobody inside the flat during this horrendous act then I am afraid I will have to break the door to get inside.

I will mostly try to change the flat to new area to end this for good, that's all I am capable of doing.

I read your website everyday and I thank you for your uptodate news on Kuwait.

Most likely its someone you know or someone in your building so having the perp on camera will help you recognize who.

You could also get a fake camera, there are shops in hawalli that sell them and that could be enough to deter the guy.

Use an acetone-based nail polish remover. It must contain acetone, because acetone softens cyanoacrylate.

its weird that your harish doesn't what you to put camera maybe his the one doing it hahahahahahaah

Your Harris can go fuck himself.  You have the right to put a camera.  Call the police on him if he resists.  Also file a police report about the super glue.

Most probably though its an asshole kid, not a stalker.

I think your Haris is messing with you and wants you out if he is allowing this to continue not giving permission to do anything about it

order a surveiliance system from arlo,

its a little router that cnnects to the internet and it comes with 2 - 4 cameras you can choose, it really clear, and you can install it very easily around the house and one out door, the cameras are battery operated, and the charge lasts like 4 months and they recharge in a hour or two, the picture is clear and it takes a video of whomever passes by

Next time this happens, call the police. Let them lift fingerprints and check their database to see find who the criminal is. Surely he/she might have kept their fingerprints on the door.

We live in a crazy world.

you can buy a boatload of GOOF OFF from ace hardware in al rai. BTW, I think its ur harris that is messing with you. Install a peep hole camera and collect the evidence, its quite simple to install.
Also, file a police report, please.

1) file police report immediately.

2) install camera - some of the others have recommended wireless cameras so you don't need anyone's permission

3)From a fight or flight viewpoint:  this sounds really dangerous.  If you went to your door late at night and found out you couldn't get in because the key-hole was plugged with glue, where would you go if someone came up to you at that exact moment?

You can use WD 40 Spray
