We didn't need this for our home but I like the idea of a little bit extra strength on my door locks. It's definitely sturdy, you can literally leave your doors completely unlocked and lock only this and no one is getting through your door unless that use a sledge hammer or other devise to cut through your door. Very easy to install although do not use the included phillips head screws, they strip easily. I used construction framing screws with torx heads.
easy to install, easy to lock, do the job. Not use the screws that coming with the device, buy new ones on Home Depot, Lowes, what ever place you want, because the quality is not good and you need long screws, like 4 inch long if you want be safe your door..
This lock is very sturdy. It has a learning curve on how to open it. Once you figure it out, it is easy. The plus side to this is that it is essentially child proof as it is very tricky for kids to figure it out. It is used to provide security for intruders getting into the house and to keep the kids in (simply for peace of mind).
My entry door only has one deadbolt so I wanted something for added security. It took my son about 15 minutes to carve out the door frame an 1/8” depth to make the plate flush. It did take a minute or two to figure out how to unlock it. This lock was a very easy cheap investment for that extra peace of mind.
This was probably the easiest thing I've ever installed. Once in the locked position, I believe the door would have to come down before this lock would release. I use it on my front and back doors when I'm in for the day; which guarantees me a good night sleep. Wish I'd of found this lock earlier....great product. Highly recommend.
