Improve the Security of the Doors in your Home

Door Lock Security

Improve the security of the doors in your home just by replacing the short screws that attach the strike plate to the door frame with 2.5-3 inch #8 stainless steel sheet metal screws. This will help in slowing down an intruder breaking through the door. The reason why is that the longer, and stronger screws actually penetrate the 2X4s behind the door frame instead of just the 1 inch door frame itself.
