Protect Yourself Against Forced Entries Use High Security Tuff Strikes
A strike plate is a metal plate affixed to a door jamb with a hole or holes for the bolt of the door. When the door is closed, the bolt extends into the hole in the strike plate, and holds the door closed. The strike plate protects the jamb against friction from the bolt, and increases security in the case of a jamb made of a softer material (such as pine) than the strike plate.
This is a standard strike plate after a KICK-IN. The door jamb has split due to the force. This door had a standard strike plate and 2 inch screws. Don’t let this happen to your door!
