    physical, non-computer related security

    Anyone know what this type of door latch is called? They're very good, some rogue once tried to kick my front door in, and in the end he just kicked a hole in the door! The latch was still secure. But I need to buy some more and don't know what they're called. Web sites I've checked so far just call them "latches". Can anyone help?

    Cheers!

    Try a search for door limiter, door limiting restrictor.

    I'd give you links - but I'd hate to be the cause of a spam report

    Found loads of UK suppliers with this search string

    Whatever it's called it's only as strong as the screws & door frame holding it in place. Judging by those screws a kick or shoulder bump would dislodge it.

    Dunno which country you are in and what your house is built of but over here you secure your locks with rawlbolts sunk into brick/concrete and you have about three different locks and a security gate to keep the bastards out.

    Use your legs or you could dislocate a shoulder.

    The doors where I live are hollow and would probably not withstand a good kicking - the door jam would probably break off cuz the screws are the weakest link.

    Large, aggressive dogs are perfect for such things.

    Thanks everyone, I now have some ideas.

    I've got a large, barky dog, but if intruders got in she would probably pin them down and lick them to death. I don't want to be responsible for such a horrific experience!

    EDIT: How do I mark this thread as "solved"? I looked at the "Thread Tools" menu and didn't see an option for it.
