You can't argue the laws of physics
The weakest part of any structure will break when enough pressure is applied. This same basic principal applies to doors. The bottom line is that the weakest part on your door is going to break if it is kicked hard enough. We learned this the hard way, when we were developing our first product six years ago
and through a lot of subsequent testing. If you do not reinforce your door jamb or the lock area on the door and hinges, your door can still be kicked in!
If you are buying a product to stop a kick-in, you are wasting your money if you do not reinforce all three week points on your door. Our Door Security solutions come as a kit because that is the only way they work.
Any company who tells you that reinforcing one area on your door is sufficient has never really tested what they are trying to sell you. Competitive products
make a lot of false claims on their web sites that can cost you dearly. We encourage you to view competitor sites and make your own determination of who is being truthful with their customers.
The difference between perception and reality
If door protection were not necessary, we would not provide it because it costs us more. If longer screws were adequate to prevent hinges from being kicked-in, that is all we would provide, because it would cost us much less. However, we know that both of these are necessary because OUR PRODUCT FAILED
when Door Shields and Hinge Shields were not used. Everything that we tell our customers about doors and their weakness is based on years of personal experience and testing.
