Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Baar SOLID BRASS COMBINATION DOOR GUARD
My wooden front entry door was split at the latch and dead bolt area. I mean missing wood. I paid a lot of money for the door several years ago and didn't want to get rid of the door. The SOLID BRASS COMBINATION DOOR GUARD Covered all of the damaged area and is very decorative looking.
I'm very pleased with the outcome. I shared the work with a carpenter $150.00 because my door was out of jam The holes didn't match my vertical configuration between the door handle and the dead bolt holes but was very close. I cut a piece of wood out from an old 2x4 in a circular motion to create a plug for the dead bolt hole and glued the plug in the dead bolt hole and let dry a couple of days then drilled a new dead bolt hole using the SOLID BRASS COMBINATION DOOR GUARD as a template for matching the vertical holes for the door handle and dead bolt.
If I tried to indent on the door to accommodate the brass door guard thickness ( I'm not sure of the plate thickness maybe a 16th of an inch) The guard holes would have moved horizontally beyond my door holes so I sanded the jam side instead to accommodate the door and guard and didn't touch the door at all. I think your imagination would be sufficient to imagine the look and process I have explained above. They don't really allow for any lengthy CON ( NOT that there was any I just want to let home depot know that isn't really fair) I would have included a picture of the finished product but didn't have a camera at the time of this review. I don't know if I can ad a picture after the review. If I can I will, hope this helps.

My son locked his door and had to kick it in breaking it slightly around the knob. Found this to fix the door at a good cost without having to replace the door!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jimbeaux Good solution
Really a no brainer, it fit the standard door bores perfectly. Great solution to a simple problem. the door in question had been broken into and was split. the brass guard held it together, covered up the cracks and strengthened it at the same time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda0911 SAVED ME FROM BUYING A NEW DOOR!
Thugs kept kicking my door in, thus breaking the locks and busting the door and frame. This door guard kept me from having to buy an entire new door because it secures the busted area. It also looks nice! Best of all, the thugs haven't come back!
