Initially, we installed the Door Security Kit on a standard (hollow core) bedroom door.


And initially, we installed the Door Lock Guard next to the door handle latch.


Then we painted each component with door and trim paint to perfectly match it's respective background.

Afterwards, We Decided to Make the Door Even More Secure...


We replaced the old hinges and we installed a new solid core bedroom door (the new door only cost $46 at Home Depot).


Here are the new hinges installed. We also installed one 3" long T-20 screw into the center hole of each side of every hinge.


The old hinges and the standard short 3/4" long screws are shown on the left. The new hinges (less than $10) with some 3" T-20 Torx screws added are shown on the right.

And Finally, We Installed a "Keyed" Door Handle Latch and a Deadbolt

This is what the door now looks like from the end when it's open.

This is what the complete finished installation looks like from the outside of the bedroom.
