According to the FBI, the easiest way for a criminal to get into your house is just to kick in your door.

Every 12 seconds a home is invaded by going right through the front or back door. This is called door frame failure. Two o’clock in the afternoon is the biggest break-in time.

As a US Marine Corps security specialist and international security consultant, founder of Safe Homes International, Ed Anderson wanted to apply his extensive background in the security profession in a way that would benefit others. His goal was to create a solution to frequent thefts that happen when soft wood door casings utilized in nearly all residential-category door units are kicked in. That solution was the Strikemaster..

Now, the newly reengineered StrikeMaster II PRO, provides your home with the first line of defense against an intruder.

The StrikeMaster II PRO does not require additional locking devices. Its installation adds nearly 5 feet of customized steel strength to your existing door frame. It is powder coated white to match most homeowner’s trim colors or you can paint it to match your decor.

It’s constructed of two parts; both pieces fit together making one unit that goes on the locking side of the frame, this two piece U.S. patented construction eliminates the removal of the door casing trim, saving valuable time. Designed with standard cuts 5 1/2 inches – 6 inches between dead-bolt and entry lock, StrikeMaster II PRO is 1/8″ thick and fits any 1-3/4″ door-frame without the need to alter the door casing or frame design. You don’t have to remove any of trim for installation. This heavy-duty strike plate uses 2.5-inch wood screws to cut deep into the existing door frame stud. Most installations take less than 30 minutes.
