There is an inherent weakness in all traditional inward opening timber doors.
The Kickstop range was devised by a long established firm of locksmiths and security retailers in East London. Concerned about the growing trend for burglars to kick in a front or back door, they were aware that a door will split open (along the grain) where the door had been weakened as a result of morticing and lock fitting.
The strength or a good quality mortice lock is not in question.
It's the door and frame that would split open and fail during a forced entry.
The main areas of weakness on an inward opening door are:
The door - around the mortice deadlock or sashlock.
The frame - around the mortice lock striking plate.
The frame and door - around the hinge.
The rim lock staple itself.
Kickstop has developed several products to deal with these security issues
