Kicking the Door is the #1 method for burglars to enter the home. Regardless of the deadbolt, burglars know a door frame with less than one inch of soft wood is defending your TV, jewelry, and valuables. With a single strong kick, the door frame is usually destroyed.
Surprisingly, homeowners will spend thousands on an alarm system, but don’t think to address the point most likely to be exploited in an attack – the door frame.
A U.S. company (www.Doordevil.com) developed a simple Do-It-Yourself door security solution.
A simple door reinforcement device fortifies the door frame. It works by diffusing the force of a kick across 4 feet of solid steel. Heavy-duty screws drive into the 2×4 studs of the home making the reinforced door frame nearly indestructible. A typical install takes about 30 minutes and blends seamlessly with the door.
No security measure is 100% guaranteed to stop a determined thief. Adding an anti-kick component to the security system, however, can both DETER criminals from attacking your home and DEFEND the home if they decide to attack.
Door Devil™ Anti-kick devices are made in the USA and can be found on-line at www.DoorDevil.com.
