Reinforcing your entry door and making it burglar proof may not be sexy but keeping your stuff and your family safe is a noteworthy cause.
This is Jeff from Home Repair Tutor and today I’m going to take you through my step-by-step process on how to do use the EZ Armor Kit to reinforce an entry door. Unfortunately almost anyone could kick open your front door because it’s most-likely secured with 1/2 or 3/4 inch steel screws. You can buy a kit from a home store like Lowe’s that stop burglars in their tracks-literally. This kit is easy to install and needs only a drill along with a screw bit and 11/64 inch drill bit.
