"Door Security Pro is #1 for a Good Reason... Because Nothing Else Compares!"


Both competitors above listed above use THIN, 18 GAUGE SHEET METAL to make their products. Below is the definitive proof that their 18 gauge metal is too weak to prevent the forced entry of a door when it's used for door frame reinforcement. They'll try to convince you that they have no reported product failures, but here's the proof that their product can and will fail. The photo below was sent to us by a customer who owned one of our competitor's products and was taken by the police at the crime scene after they were burglarized. We have the police report on file.

ALL of OUR DOOR REINFORCEMENT PRODUCTS are made from 14 gauge cold-rolled steel, it's nearly twice as thick as 18 gauge steel. That's the difference you get when you purchase "Professional Grade Door Security" products from us.

18 Gauge Steel is TOO WEAK
