how do i install? there are no directions.

Asked by: dd
Thank you for your inquiry regarding this item from Prime-Line Products. TO INSTALL: Select desired location on inswing side of door and jamb, usually shoulder high. Position the hinged, movable loop (part A) 3/8" from the edge of the door jamb. The wider part of the mounting flange must be towards the door. Mark hole locations and drill 1/16" holes. Use longer screw in the center hole only to position the loop unit on the jamb. Position the arm (B) on the door so that the edge of the mounting flange is no more than 7/8" from the edge of the loop flange on the jamb. This spacing must be observed in order for the lock to work properly. Mark location of holes on arm mounting flange and drill 1/16" holes. Use four smaller screws to secure arm unit on door. Check the operation of lock before installing the remaining two long screws to secure loop.

Customer Reviews

Brass-Plated Swing Bar Door Guard is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only works with tiny molding Complete waste of time. Package says nothing about it NOT working with standard molding. It only works if the total depth of the molding around the door is about 1/4" thick...any detail or raised piece of molding essentially blocks it from working at all. WASTE OF TIME.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke into peices! If you just want a lock to keep children in then this is your lock! I have a toddler that likes to unlock and open doors on her own, and I liked having this just in case she decided to do it without my supervision. At first I also thought of it as extra security...until my husband broke it by accident! Long story short, we both left the house through the garage, but I have the only key for that door. Plus, we forgot to unlock the swing bar lock on the front door so he could get back in. He was able to reach his hand in and pop off the bolts that secure the swing bar. After he got in he realized that the force he had put on the door to mess with the bolts had severely bent the arm of the lock (this is the bar with the ball piece on it) and with a touch of his hand it fell off! It's great for keeping small children in, but it is easy to tamper with from the outside, and can break without great force! Please keep looking for a better source of security for you and your family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lock ever! Even with deadbolt locks I sometimes have a need for this type of lock (when small children are visiting). Also, I was recently burglarized. They picked/damaged the deadbolt on the only door that did not have this type of lock. They could not enter the other doors (3) because of these locks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well built and reasonably priced Had to return the product just because it did not fit my application. The spacers included could have been constructed of a little more substantial material and some additional spacers included. My door installation was a simple installation with a simple interior trim, however, there were not enough spacer options included in the package for the item to work. It was a very nice product with a very nice finish and a very reasonable price, but just happened to not fit my application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, good finish, quality product The door guard was easy to install and I had no difficulty following the clear instructions. The finish is of a high quality and the brass matched the door fittings that I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase I purchased this not for security from an intruder but to keep a toddler from unlocking the door and walking out. It was easy to install which was a plus to me (a female). I plan to purchase another to put on the back door.
