Easy to install, more or less than the same quality but cheaper than the one I purchased from the Home Depot. However, the screw is not strong as a regular construction grade or deck screw. I didn't drill a hole before I put the screw, 2 screw heads were broken. I suggest users drill a hole before putting the screw. But, the lock looks good and is so far so good. I use the lock twice a day (lock once, unlock once). Hope it lasts forever.
Good concept but I was recently locked out of my house. Had to the back door where I had this locked into. Knowing I was going to break the frame, I slammed the door with my shoulder. Door gave away so easy and the frame was fine. But the metal on the lock was bent like it wasn’t even a thing. Kinda disappointed
THE ONE THAT WE MESSED WITH IS VERY TIGHT AND HARD TO MANIPULATE IF YOU HAVE HAND ISSUES, LIKE TENDONITIS, ARTHRITIS, TRIGGER FINGER/THUMB, ETC....
I'M GOING TO MESS WITH IT SOME MORE AND GIVE AN UPDATE AFTER INSTALLING A COUPLE OF THESE AND ANOTHER STYLE ON VARIOUS DOORS AROUND THE AREA.
I BELIEVE THIS WILL HELP SLOW AN INTRUDER DOWN IF INSTALLED CORRECTLY ! MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING AT LEAST 3 INCH SCREWS GOING INTO DOOR FRAME! (PLEASE DO THIS WITH ALL OF YOUR LOCKS AS WELL, TAKE THE 1/2 INCH SCREWS OUT AND REPLACE W/3-4 INCH SCREWS, AND MAYBE DO SAME WITH THE HINGES!OR DOOR FRAME KITS!) I STRONGLY RECOMMEND PEOPLE STATION HOME MADE OR OTHER DETERRENTS OR PRODUCTS IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THEIR HOME AS LOCKS ONLY KEEP THE HONEST PEOPLE OUT!
Well, the 3 pack for my selection is a returned product that only includes one sets of screws. It uses 3 in long screw for secure installation, thus I have to find extra screws to finish the installation.
If you got a 3 pack new with enough long screw, it is a best-buy.
This style of door lock is much more expensive than old style chain latch. It also won't allow door to be half opened. However the easy to use and sturdy makes it worth the switch. Highly recommended.
Note there is a small notch for easy sliding. Not all similar products has that notch.
a bit challenging to install though, at least for me. But these door blockers seems really sturdy. And finally it's not going to be sucked shut and locking me out of my own house when the wind storms deploys through my house when a window is open. Yep. I got locked out of my house with the other door blockers the kind you can buy at Home Depot for under $5 bucks with brass finish. These door blockers (that's a better name than "Door Lock Defender") can't snap open or shut by accident. You have to lift into place or lift out of its locked - closed blocking position. And I like that. But what i don't like is that I have modify my door frame a bit in order to install it. Hey, can't have everything. And also, I bought the 3 units, because one door will have 2 on the lock side and 1 on the hinge side.
