It serves it's purpose as a visual deterent for my deck patio doors and basement walkout patio doors. I used 2 double cylinder bolt locks since someone can reach their hands between the bars instead of the single cylinder locks. I feel alot safer at night and alot more comfortable with my wife having the patio doors open during the day for the fresh air and not having to worry about someone just walking in. The keys are in a close place if we needed to get out in an emergency. I was able to install each door in about 15 minutes.

One afternoon someone walked up to a neighbors patio door, smashed in the glass, walked in, and walked out with a new flat screen TV, leaving my neighbors to pick up the pieces. I felt way too vulnerable so immediately started looking for a way to avert that from happening to our house and came across this product! Exactly what I had in mind. I ordered and installed and am very pleased with the end result. The price of the unit is very good. However, the shipping charge was expensive (~99$) and took about two weeks. The product quality is very good with the exception of the rushed paint job. I had to use a can of white spray paint to touch up some rust spots and uneven painted areas but not a big deal. I did not use the included security screws because after 4 stores I couldn't find a driver for them and based on other reviews I just tossed them in the loose screw bucket. I used heavy duty 4 inch screws installing with silicone on the threads to enhance seal integrity (as another reviewer suggested). I then used silicon and lock-tight to deface the screw heads. Lastly, I painted the screw heads white to disguise which matches the gate. I installed a lever doorknob so I can still use the screen (clears the knob) with nice weather and feel secure, but rely on a small strand of robust chain (painted white to match) wrapped around (used clear silicone to attach the chain links in convenient position on the mounted frame) the frame near doorknob and a heavy-duty designer combination padlock to secure. This makes it secure and qwik and easy to exit/enter. The design is such that you can modify it any way you want basically, My install is solid, looks nice, and makes a statement. For the money you will not do better. I highly recommend this as an investment to your home. Now I worry less while away and the beach will feel that much better!

I picked up the security door from my local home depot (ship to store). It came in approximately 3 weeks after placing an order). The box it came in was a little over 3 feet wide and about 7 feet long (easy to transport in a pickup bed). I am fairly handy using power tools and I had no difficulty installing the door on a cement stucco house. (Note that a hammer drill was required to drill 8 holes in the masonry). I also chose to add spacers to facilitate closing the patio door screen. To complete the installation, I purchased and installed a double cylinder dead bolt and standard door knob kit. The house is now more secure, and the door looks absolutely great.

Great value, I always felt like a forced entry through a glass door would be too easy. This patio door gives me peace of mind and makes my family feel safer at home and away. For people who are worried about cosmetics just remember broken glass is much more unattractive.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PhilWashDC A good deal for the price
This door was exactly what I wanted to add protection, at comparatively low cost, to my French doors that open to a deck. However be aware that the website description of the door that states '..both doors open to allow...' is incorrect. One of the doors is bolted or screwed to the outside wall and once installed cannot be opened. However the door extends out from the wall several inches and you can easily reach through the bars if you need access what is behind the stationary door.
