Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by guard against bump lock U Tube is loaded with how to's for intruders to bump pick almost every door lock set and deadbolt on the market today. This device eliminates that possibility by forcing the interior handle to remain in the locked position even if the lock is picked since the intruder is unable to rotate the clinder. This will only work on single cylinder dead bolts, double cylinder dead bolts have no interior handle. I suggest every exterior door have one. You'll sleep better knowing that at the very least the intruder will have to break something to enter your home and not just simply bump the lock and open the door. I ordered only the brass finish and it is not a polished brass the appearance is a flat brass effect. To some extent it hides the presence of the guard and I don't really notice it being installed. Installation is absolutey simple if you can loosen and then retighten two screws you can install this. Cheap protection device at its finest. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deadbolt Secure Arrived on time and was very easy to install. It does a nice job of securing the deadbolt. You just have to remember to use it every time you lock the deadbolt. It is hard to imagine that something so simple and light would help secure the door. I still think that it may slow the crooks down but if they want to get in, the will find a way. But it seems to work and most crooks want to get in fast and out fast, and this will slow them down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works wonderfully! Easy to install. Soon after a neighbor's home was broken into, my husband saw this item featured in the "Handyman" magazine. We ordered enough for our doors, and the doors of our neighbor. They work great! My neighbor feels so much more secure now, and so do we. Great product for such a reasonable price, and easy to install. April 15, 2014
