All Entry Doors, Door Jambs & Hinges Must Be Reinforced to Stop

a Robbery From a Door Kick-In.

The Door Security Pro™ Door Security Kit Stops Door Kick-ins Quickly, Easily Permanently
and Inexpensively.

Why Can Doors Be So Easily Kicked-in or Forced Open?

It all comes down to one critical design flaw and it's found on virtually every exterior residential entry door. Most exterior doors, hinges, deadbolts and door handle latches are fairly strong. It's the WOODEN DOOR FRAME, also known as the door jamb, that is the weakest area. Door jambs are most often constructed from softwood trees such as Pine, Spruce and Fir.

The problem is quite simple. Soft wood door jambs can't withstand the force of the 1/2" diameter solid steel deadbolt stem being massively forced against them which is what happens when a door is kicked-in or shoulder-slammed. The most efficient, most cost effective solution to fix the problem is to install a metal door frame reinforcement device that extends well above and below the strike plates on the door jamb. It should be well secured using multiple extra-long, high strength, large diameter screws that burrow deep into the wall studs that are behind the door jamb. By doing this, you now have steel holding steel instead of wood holding steel.

Door Frame Section Drawing

Most door hinges and strike plates are only attached to the 1/2" thick, soft wood door frame using small diameter and weak 1/2" or 3/4" long screws. As you can see in the illustration above, most doors are not even actually attached to the wall structure (the 2 x 4 studs) when 1/2" or 3/4" long screws are used, but only to the soft wood trim door frame. The air space is there to allow 'squaring' of the door frame so the door will hang level, and open and close properly.

The Door Security Pro (72" model) is a revolutionary door security device that uses SEVENTEEN large diameter, 3" to 3.5" long, high strength, rustproof steel screws, both in the hinges (3 screws) and in the strike plate (14 screws). As you can also see in the illustration above, our screws truly attach the hinges and our heavy duty strike plate to the wall itself, making the door frame dramatically stronger. This virtually assures that the hinges will hold the door on, and that the door frame will never break (which is what allows most doors to be kicked in).

A Deadbolt Lock Alone Does Not Truly Secure Your Door!

We all know that deadbolts lock doors, but what most people don't realize is that even good quality deadbolts alone don't make doors truly secure. As you can see from the pictures above, even when you have a good quality deadbolt, your door can still easily be forced open if your door frame has not been reinforced.

Door security devices like deadbolts and steel doors are not usually the problem. 80% of the time when a door is forced open, it's the door frame that fails. The average door strike plate is secured only by the soft-wood door jamb molding. These lightweight moldings are usually only tacked onto the door frame and can be torn away with a firm kick or shoulder slam. Chiseling out and removing wood to fit the strike plates will also result in a much more weakened door frame, but it's a necessary evil as well.

Unless extra reinforcement is added to strengthen the door frame, a forced entry or door kick-in burglary will split open the wooden door frame around the strike plates and beyond for approximately 1 - 2 feet in each direction. Again, crime statistics show that roughly 80% of all residental door break-ins are a result of door frame failure.
