"73% of Burglars Kick-in Doors...And It Can Take Less Than 1 Second!"

In the video on the left, notice that a guy shows up and appears to be dressed as a repair man with some type of identification badge on his shirt. He leaves at 15:45:20.

(His job is to determine if any one is at home...before the actual upcoming burglary takes place)

Exactly 5 minutes later, at 15:50:20 a different guy appears in a white t-shirt.

At 15:51:05 he "mule kicks" the door and in less than 1 second the door is open and he goes in.

Door Jamb Breaking Apart 2

In the photo on the right, notice the area highlighted in the yellow box. (This photo is a "still-shot" from the video above.)

That is the strike plate flying through the air after the door was kicked in.

Attached to the stike plate is the soft wood trim that the strike plate was screwed into (which was holding the door shut).

If you go back and watch the video again, you will see this happen at exactly 15:51:05 and the door is open at 15:51:06 (in one second).


In the photos on the left and the right are examples of how the typical door frame looks after a door has been kicked in.

In the example on the left, you can clearly see the space between the door frame trim and the 2x4 wall stud. That door trim is the only thing that was keeping that door locked. When it broke, that's what allowed the door to open.

In the example on the right, you can see how much of the door frame actually split apart when the door was kicked-in. This is WHY you must have a LONG (48" or more), STRONG (heavy gauge steel with 3" screws) strike plate on every exterior door.
