Most new houses and almost all old houses come standard with locks that have a strike plate on the frame that does not give you much security protection. The result of this can be devastating to home owners. Over the years of being a locksmith in the Orlando and Central Florida Area I have seen that about 80% of the houses in the Orlando & the Central Florida Area have these strike plates that give home owners a false sense of security. In fact I am willing to challenge you to a test that I know the answers to already.
Get a Phillips screw driver and remove the strike plate on the frame, the one that the deadbolts bolt slides into. ( see below)
Look at the screws, (I bet they are under a inch long)
Try to bend the strike plate ( I bet you can bend it easily)
The problem with this strike plate is that screws are to small and when you screw the strike plate to the frame it will only screw into the light weight decorative wood. This is a problem because when someone kicks or pries your door it will just break the decorative wood and allow entry. Well I know what you are thinking, your thinking thanks Locksmith Expert I’ll just put long screws into the strike plate and I will be safe. With out knowing about the inferior light gauge strike plate that might seem like a great idea. If the bendable strike plate is anchored correctly when kicked or pried it will just bend and break just as easy as with short screws.
1. A-Abra-KEY-Dabra Locksmith Services can install a heavy duty strike plate with long screws and a thick gauge metal construction. ( The screws will be very long and screw into the stud behind the decorative wood and the strike plate will be equally strong to help against kicks and pries.)
2. A-Abra-KEY-Dabra Locksmith Services can install a heavy duty metal sleeve to cover your entire door frame. ( This Product will be anchored with many long screws that anchor to the studs behind the decorative wood and provide an even more secure solution)
