Yes. It Happens on YOUR Property!
As a national sponsor of Maintenance Maintenance Mania, we have worked with thousands of property owners, managers and maintenance people. Just about any property manager that you talk to will tell you that kick-ins "are not a problem on MY property." Ask any maintenance person about kick-ins and they will tell you, "Yeah, we have them all the time." The difference is that property managers view kick-ins as a result of crime, which no property wants to have. Maintenance people simply know that they must repair the damage, regardless of how it happens. The fact is that most kick-ins on multi-family units are not the result of a break-in.
Do The Math
It makes no sense to replace doors that have been kicked in because they will likely be kicked in again. For many property managers, repairing doors that have been kicked-in
, can be one of their biggest maintenance expenses. If your property experiences multiple kick-ins per week, these maintenance expenses can be significant. If you are not as concerned about additional security, you can easily repair a damaged jamb in 15 minues with FIX-A-JAMB, which costs only $39.00.

Top Multi-Family Kick-In ReasonsDomestic DisputesLost KeysBurglarsPoliceEmergency Situations
While many burglaries happen during the day, the calls for many door repairs come at night, when tenants return home. For some reason, domestic issues always seem to happen at night. The fact is, whenever or however it happens, someone must fix it.
Fix It Once
For years, many property managers have simply purchased a new door every time one would get kicked in. Others will have their maintenance people rebuild the entire door jamb, which can take 3 to 4 hours. In any event, the result can be a bill of more than $500 each time a door is kicked in. The bigger issue is that a new door can be kicked in just as easily as an old door and a 4 hour repair can be a waste of time, unless the jamb is reinforced.

If a resident has the door kicked-in, it must be repaired or the apartment owner faces potential liability issues. If a complex has experienced significant crime and nothing has been done to stop it, the risk of liability increases greatly. As with everywhere, negligence lawsuits have risen substantially in the multi-family industry. Security Expert Chris McGoey discusses the premises liability nightmare
in depth on his Crime Doctor web site.
Competitor lies cost us!
We were told that there was not a lot of difference between Door Jamb Armor and this competitive product. They said that the hinges would be protected by longer screws. Well, we tried their product and were still having doors kicked-in left and right. Thank you for giving us a deal on the 600 hinge shields so that we could finally stop this problem. We'll be sure to use Door Jamb Armor the next time
Didn't Work without hinge shields
O.k., so you told me to use the hinge shields and I didn't listen. I have never seen a hinge get kicked in before... until now. I don't know how long they kicked (on the door) but they got in because the jamb split on the hinge side. I even had longer screws in the hinges and it didn't work. I will not make this mistake again
The Oxnard Police gave us the information on your door armor, of course this was after our front door was kicked in and a 350lb. safe was carried out. We are now in Escrow and looking forward to moving north. When we get settled and find a new home we will be contacting you to learn more about your new products and keeping us safe. Thanks Again.
240lbs No Match
Hey, I just want to let you guys know that the installation went just as easy as you described and finished in less than a hour. I travel a lot and the piece of mind that I have that my wife and possessions are safer put my mind at ease. I am 6'4" 240lbs and I put a couple of whacks in the door that would have taken the old jam out for sure. Nothing I did could budge it. Thanks a bunch
It Takes A Thief Testimonial
This is a great product. I've seen that it works as advertised and can be used in situations where no other product will work... Had I known about this product sooner, we would have used it on every episode. I’m sold"
