The "Door Saver" device could prevent the door from being kicked in by an intruder and protect people and belongings inside. The unit would provide added safety and security to a building or home. The device would feature an easy-to-install design.
The "Door Saver" would consist of a locking, extendable rod, two steel plates, two hinge assemblies and two locks. The unit would measure approximately 30-inches long, 3-inches wide and 1/8- inch thick. The locking system can be used on a 30-, 32-, 34-, or 36-inch door. The steel rod would be positioned horizontally across the interior of the door, above the knob. To install, a user would put one hinge on the inside ends of the door so that the rod would fit into the holes and would open left to right. A user would open the door and place the steel plates on the outside of it, fastening them together at the appropriate width using nuts and bolts. Next, the user would close the door, mark the holes on the inside of the frame and then slide the bar into the marked holes. The ends of the rod would insert through the holes on the base of the plates, through the holes in the leaf section on the hinges and into the holes in the frame surrounded by the rectangular guards. The ends of the bar would be held in position via cylindrical sleeves featuring set screws. Sleeves would be composed of cold, rolled steel and measure 1-1/4-inches by 2-inches by ¾-inch. The steel plates would not be needed while the user is at home; only when leaving the house. While plates are not in use, the extendable rod is sufficient for inward-opening doors.
