Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kbcoch Security is very important
I bought this because it is one piece instead of 2 which makes my home more secure then it would otherwise be. It is sturdy and very easy to install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handy575 Great security must
Good quality product. A must have for people who want added security. But make sure to pick up additional screws as the ones provided are of poorer quality.

This is great product be sure to use long enough screws to anchor into the framing structure of the house to increase the safety of the entrance.

This product was the perfect solution to solve an issue with a garage side door. I just wish I went to HD first.

These security strike plates are fantastic and really easy to install. Buy your own 4" solid deck screws to use with it. Don't use the ones that are provided -- they are not as strong as deck screws. This will definitely hold back any "door kicker." I have had at least 3 friends have their doors not kicked in because of these plates. Definitely a good buy! Don't forget to put on all your exterior doors, though. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jdjax Inexpensive way to strengthen door
While it takes a little bit of work to install this as you will have to mortise out a rather large area for the plate to fit flush, it's a very inexpensive way to substantally strengthen a door against kick-ins. As long as you have a solid wood door (or metal door) along with a decent deadbolt and door edge guard (e.g. U 9567), this should go a long ways towards making your door much harder to kick in. So for about $20 for this double strike plus the door edge guard (assuming you have a decent deadbolt and door and a few common tools) - you can be a lot safer!
You will need a good wood chisel, power drill, 1/8 inch bit to drill pilot holes for screws, hammer, and screwdriver (philips or bit for drill). Also, having a Dremel or similar tool is helpful to smooth out the surfaces and edges once you are done chiseling. Always use a dust mask and eye protection when doing this kind of work!
