Bought 2 for a tenant after someone got in with the credit card trick to open a lock! First one worked great; the second wouldn't latch due to odd doorframe, but my helper figured out that removing the rubber strip solved the spacing problem, and the latch still was very secure when we tested it!

Product was just what I expected. I did need to slightly mortise my wooden door jamb when installing the Door Blocker so that the door would close without hitting the unit.
My only complaint is that, when unlatching the device, you must grip it by the smallish TOP and BOTTOM surfaces (which are about 3 inches apart) using the tips of your thumb and forefinger, and then slide it slightly sideways.
I think it would be much easier to unlock the device if it was made with a tab on its VERTICAL face so as to provide for a more natural and easier gripping point. I plan to modify my unit so it will have this feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SR357 A real MUST have product
I bought these for both doors of my home 5 years ago. They are very strong and simple in design. Extremely useful if you have toddlers that have figured out how to unlock your doors (My 5 year old still cannot get this lock open....Of course we have never taught him how it works). The greatest feature of this product is the added security it gives you when you are inside your house. No one can get in when they are locked and they are 10 times stronger than a dead bolt according to the manufacture. We are in the midst of buying a second house and this product is the first thing my wife asked for. We will have these installed on our doors for the rest of our life.

I had a back door with a glass window making the deadbolt easy to access. Installed this device in about 10 minutes and now even if someone breached the door, they still can't get it open from outside.
Easy to open from inside and it is out of the way when not engaged.

Make sure you install perpendicular to the door face or just part of the rubber bumper will engage the door. Comes with 3 long screws, which is good. Materials are good and strong. You'll need to spray some PTFE "Teflon" dry lube on the mechanism for it to work smooth (and not be greasy). The design keeps the rubber "stop" really close to the edge of the door.

I needed additional security on my side garage door and I was limited due to the trim around my door. I found this product online and thought I would try it. It appears to be very solid and nicely made. I am a single mom and I had no problem installing it myself.
A few tips for anyone who may not feel comfortable with the installation. 1. Put the latch in the open position and screw in the smaller screw into the sliding slot, but not too tight. Shut the door and secure the latch before doing the other screws. Once you get it into the position, open the door, secure the smaller screw down tight and mark the position of the other three holes on the door jamb. 2. Use a 1/8" drill bit to pre-drill pilot holes for the longer screws. If you don't you will risk splitting your wood frame. 3. Close the door and check your position again. You do not want to screw in those long screws and find out the position is off. 4. Run the threads of the long screws over a bar of bath soap. This will help drive the screws in more easily. With the length of the screws it is easy to strip the heads and then they are no good.
With this door stop installed, you can not open the door from the outside. I feel it makes the door much more secure. I would definitely recommend this product.
