Michigan Home Defense Tip: Upgrade Lock Striker Plates and Screws

Michigan Personal Protection Tips: Upgrade Lock Striker Plates and Screws.

When securing doors, many people underestimate the importance of larger striker plates that are installed with longer screws. Without a quality striker plate in place, a solid door with dead-bolt locks installed can still be compromised with a prying tool. 

Typically, most homes have small striker plates installed with only a few half-inch screws that only seat into the door's casing lumber.

A much more secure option is to use a larger striker plate that uses six to eight screws at least three inches long that actually pass completely through the casing lumber and into the 2x4 framing lumber.
