Works Great, Excellemt Price, Easy to install

Comments about Door Security Bar:
I have had no issues with mine(2) and I use them during the day and night. They were easy to adjust to the proper height and my body building friend could not push the door open. Look at the measurements of the item to ensure that it will fit from under you door handle to the floor. Naturally, if something doesn't fit correctly, it is not going to work. I live in an apartment complex with no deadbolt and these add security and peace of mind. I use one on the front door and the other on the patio door. My floors are linoleum and somewhat slick. They are tight and there is no slippage. My only concern is after long periods of use that the plastic that fits around the door handle might break. The manufacturers could use another material; however, right now, I am very happy. They are so affordable, I will just buy more if they break. I'm glad I didn't take the advice of the negative posts. I surmise they weren't installed properly. One has to set the item(s) to the correct height. That was not difficult at all. I have recommended to friends who have already made a purchase and are satisfied.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Gave me peace of mind
By Gadget Shopper
from Waukesha, WI
I bought this for the extra security and peace of mind it gives me. It's easy to use and I know it works well because a friend with a key tried to surprise me (in a good way)and couldn't open the door while it was in use. I love the fact it is easy to take with me when I travel and gives extra security in hotel rooms.
dont' judge a book by it's cover, ineffective junk
By MN grandma
not along enough to reach any door knobs in our house. Did prop it up the best we could and our 10 year old grand daughter pushed it right over w/o any effort. It is a piece of junk.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

excellent security door guard
Has a role in hurricane protection
from MS Gulf Coast
My neighborhood is pretty safe and my home security is good (famous last words!)so generally I only use them on two occasions, the first being hotel/motel security on road trips. We live on the MS Gulf Coast. New house (built after Katrina)has three entrances, all double doors with high impact glass. But two of them open inward so have little resistance to hurricane force winds. In addition to other locking devices we put the security bars on those two and exit via the other doors for evacuation. The bars give significant added support that could only be surpassed with much more expensive, involved and time-cosuming options. Will it be enough? We'll see.
from Washington state
The security bars concept is good. The problem with it is it was very difficult to line up the button on the bar with the exact hole on the bar you need for your doors knobHeight. I have a cane with same type of concept I know how the security bar should be adjusted but it is difficult. Once you finally get it adjusted it should work fine.

Now I Feel Safe In My Home
from Orangeburg, SC
I love this product. It was easy to assemble. But the rubber tips slip off after use. They must constantly be checked to be sure it is still in place. But overall, works well.
