Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MischiefMansMom Excellent and Non-destructive
We purchased this item to help keep our 2 1/2 year old Houdini from escaping out through the garage door (and front door)....again. The other chain locks required being screwed into the door. Since our door to the garage is a fire door and the front door is steel, we did not want to damage the doors. This lock works perfectly as the mechanism is screwed into the door jamb with really really long screws that would seem to be impossible for even a battering ram to break through. The flat metal plate does a superior job in keeping the door all the way closed when little hands attempt to open the door to make their escape.

I asked maintenance to install this lock on my door. About 3 days later someone tried to break in my apartment but with the help of this lock they were able to break the door frames but could not enter. This lock kept the door secured. Overall I moved after that, and now i want to purchase one for my son for his new home! I love this lock... Please forever keep it on the market!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Texmex Disappointed
I bought to comply with City Code. Disappointed. Not easy to install. Need more tools for install than recommend on installation guide. Heads of screw are smaller than holes. Need to buy new screws. Ugly. They are sturdy, passed inspection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Effective and easy to install
Purchased two of these for my rental. Was very easy to install. All you need is a 1/8 inch drill bit to drill three inches into door jamb for each of the four holes, then screw in the four 3-inch wood screws with a drill. Package comes with 4 x 3-inch screws and two smaller screws for the bracket.
It would be very difficult for anyone to get thru a door with this security bolt mounted. Much more reliable and stronger than the basic key chain or keyless deadbolt.
Thanks to the previous reviewer for displaying a picture to show what it looks like on a door.
