PostSubject: Prevent door kick in   Tue Mar 26, 2013 8:53 am

So looking to reinforce the exterior doors on my house. My front door is solid oak and I recently installed a grade 1 dead bolt with 3 inch screws for the strike plate. I was considering getting one of those long strike plates for all my exterior doors as well, as they supposedly help prevent doors from being kicked in. All my exterior doors have dead bolts, but not grade 1, so will replace those as well. 2 of the doors have glass in them and I was thinking of getting double cylinder locks, so you can't just break the glass and spin the lock to open it.

Another product I have seen helps reinforce the door itself: http://www.doorsecuritypro.com/door_lock_guard.html

Not an expert on this stuff, just looking for advice.

If somebody wants in,. they'll come thru the window,.


doors that open outwards,. can't be kicked in,.

Not generally no. Windows might be easy but its surprising how easy it is to kick down most residential doors, so I still think its a good idea to reinforce them. Plus its not too expensive. No house is a fortress, but these types of things can slow someone down, or cause them to have to make quite a racket to get in. Hopefully by then you can get your gun.

get a dog!? I think a good loud bark would help prevent an intruder. Just a thought.

Got a dog. Again I was just looking at reinforcing some doors. Not making them impenetrable, just harder and longer to break down is all.

You could use the idea like the link you posted (1st post) only make it bigger.
The larger it is the more it would protect (similarly...the thicker it is)

Just remember, to set a door properly & squarely, most have little shims that the securing screws or nails go thru.

Even with LONG screws, thats a weak point too...(dont forget the hinge side )
