Thirty minutes after he left, she walked outside, thinking the person had left a brochure, but instead she found a rubber band around the knob.

What happens is as soon as you unlatch the door, the person can bust in!

The rubber band can hold the door open once the lock is disengaged!

Use the peephole, don’t answer the door if you are not expecting someone.
