Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lilliebliss FAILED!!
I installed this product after a break-in. on the 15th of July. My house was again broken into on the 24th of July. They probably had to kick the door a couple more times but it did not keep them out. it is now shaped like an 's' from Kiss' logo. Did not work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TH408 Easy to install; no issues whatsoever
Well-packaged and instructions are straightforward enough to be installed in minutes. Though I have an outward swinging door I needed to reinforce the damaged strike plates as well as to add on to the benefit of having an outward swing door. Product seems solid and I can't foresee any apparent issues with it installed.

Hope it stands to its reputation that prevents easy breakins via kick ins.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PockMai Tight, but works!
Looks to be great quality and a very simple install. However, after installing, my door clearance is now real tight. Have to give the door an extra push or pull to close the door now. Tried adjusting the front door and followed instructions to pound the spots where it may be a bit tight and both didn't help. The house was built around 1980 so maybe the standards then is different from now for door specifications? Who knows, but still happy with the purchase. The front door feels solid now, it'll take a lot of kicking, pounding, and screaming to get through the front door I'm sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Installation was easy...not the best looking kit.
Installation was not hard at all however this is not the best looking kit. I installed this on the door going to the garage. I will probably end up buying another kit for the other door in the garage that goes to the outside because the kit was easy to install and this appears to be one of the cheapest kits for what you get. My only complaint is that the door does not shut as tight as it should, even after adjusting the tab for the door knob latch. I would not recommend putting this kit on your front door or any other door where you would want a neat appearance. It wouldn't be so bad if they made a particular kit depending on which way the door opened so you wouldn't have a cutout for a dead bolt latch to stare at.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ks does not easily fit all doors
My door has a standard lock set but
the distance between the bolt lock and the handle lock did match the cutouts - a lot of work to make it fit
the distance of the dead bolt fixture and the edge of the door was shorter than the steel width of the "DOOR FRAME AND HINGE REINFORCEMENT" piece -- again a lot of work had to be down to make it fit and it looks a little beat up now

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by yy Fine once it is in but a huge pain to install
This took about 4 to 6 hours to install and project planning time to decide the best approach. This item did not fit my standard door frame. I had to chisel out wood. I also had to use a multi-tool to drill out wood because the metal was too wide. Otherwise about a quarter of an inch of metal would hang past the closed door. I also had to drill a new hole for the deadbolt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vendmech great product
This works as described. I installed it on two doors on the house and the install was straight forward and now I feel the house is more secure. I have two more to install on garage doors once I install the deadbolts. I am not sure why my contractor didn't buy doors with the deadbolt holes drilled, but live and learn.
