Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DTDogen Good for security and improving door function
I don't have a ton of experience with carpentry type tasks, mostly hanging shelves, and the kit was pretty easy for me to install, but it definitely took me a lot more time than the instructions suggested (I think they say 30 minutes). Our french doors now have no "wobble" to them, seem a lot more sturdy, and as an added bonus the deadbolt operation is now very smooth- we installed the doors somewhat over a year ago and it was starting to get a little finicky to operate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynvet Now my weakest point might be the dead bolt itself.
Took me a while, but the door feels ten times more secure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Benjo Excellent way to secure your double doors.
The unit is well made and the customer service has been excellent. Please watch the installation video and not just the marketing videl on their website to get a better understanding before you buy. I installed it on my front double doors. The passive door is now pretty secure. Things you should know:
1. If you have little clearance between the doors, you may end shaving or sanding the door.
2. The passive door component will require you to unscrew one side of the two screws to open the passive door. The design assumes that you seldom use the passive door and do not mind doing through this exercise. For me, my front door is tall and requires a short ladder to unscrew the 2 inch screw. To the design's credit. the passive door if very secure and will withstand kicking.
3. I wish they included more of the long screws. I have a total of 8 hinges and kit covers only 6.

Installation would be very easy if you have a little bit of clearance between the doors, but in my case I had to recess the reinforcements and that took a bit of time. They look and I think it would be very tough to open the locked door from the outside by kicking the doors. I don't i feel like trying. Before having these reinforcements installed a small kid could have kicked the doors open.
An investment of a little money and some effort to install is well worth installing the reinforcement kit.
