Can I install the Door Guardian on a metal framed door way?

A center punch is required for metal door installation.  We recommend the installation to be performed by a Pre-Lock Security Locksmith Professional

Do I need to mortise the Door Guardian into the door frame?

No, The Door Guardian is designed to be surface mounted. Mortising is required only if the gap between the door and the frame is less than 1/16".
Our Pre-Lock Locksmith's always Mortise in the Guradian if required.

Can the Door Guardian be locked from the outside ?

No, The Door Guardian is an inside home security device and is imposible to be engaged from the outside of the house.

Can the Door Guardian accidentally lock itself ?

No, because the spring loaded action will prevent the Door Guardian from locking itself  It is not possible for it to self lock.

What can you do when the gap is too large between the rubber face of the Door Guardian and the inside of the door?

The proper gap is somewhere between 1/8” and 1/4”. If it is larger, please contact customer service at 1-877-773-5625 . Please, ensure that there is a gap in order to prevent binding of the Door Guardian with the back of the door.

Where should the Door Guardian be positioned on the door for maximum protection ?

One should install 2 Door Guardians on the same side as your door knob across from the hinges.

Can the Door Guardian be used as a childproofing device ?

Yes, the Door Guardian is an excellent childproofing device. The Door Guardian should be placed high enough on the door so that young children cannot access. Best applications include cellar doors and backdoors (especially if you own a pool).

Can the Door Guardian be used on Double Doors?

Yes, This installation requires 2 Door Guardians. One is positioned at the top of the fixed door and 1 Door Guardian is mounted on the fixed door between the fixed and operating door.  Some homes will not allow the installation of a Door Guardian on the bottom of the door because the Door Guardian does require room to flip and level door ways will not allow for the space required for the Door Guardian to flip.
We recommend the installation of Door Guardians on Double doors to be performed by experienced locksmiths.
