But see, you are missing the point of that "lock". It isn't meant to keep you safe, it is just meant for talking to someone safely on the other side of the door. You see them, and they're like "Hey, uhhh.... we brought you.... free pizza?" And you're like "Bull **** , lemme check you guys out" and bam, they try to knock the door down but your like "Eheheheheheh, I've got door stopper #4 on my side! He kept yo fools from wreckin the ell outa me!" Then you call the cops after they run away because of the horribly failed attempt.

doesn't take much of a kick to break those things though.
Just a couple screws in some wood to bust out!

Thats not really true. Mythbusters tried some door kicking myths and that ****** held on.

I'm sorry, but is that a book they are using?  Is that...   
Are the Jahovah's Witnesses utilizing such a design flaw to their advantage?   
i'm scared

that is by far the worst lock I've ever seen in my life.... do people really use them things??
User avatar #62 to #4 - lesrin (08/24/2013) [-]
the school i used to go to had them as the only lock, is so that when kids locked the stalls and crawled through the bottom the secruity or janitors could just do that, yet again by the time i left that school the school just took doors off of all male stalls
#5 to #4 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
Yes, my front door has one. And above picture is no reason to not use them, its simply another measure to make it harder to break into your house. As long as its not your only lock its ok. Besides, not everybody knows that trick.
User avatar #6 to #5 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
anyone with half a brain cell could get though that lock. It's the single most horrible lock idea I ever seen
#7 to #6 - peneculo (08/23/2013) [-]
It's not designed as a 'lock' really, It designed so that there is a primary lock lower in the door by the handle, used in order to secure the lock. This however is designed so that if there is an unknown person on the other side of the door, you can put this on and open the door a couple of inches and talk to them without allowing them to be able open and enter/hurt you.

Tl;dr; This is a saftey feature, not a lock.
User avatar #8 to #7 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
if there was someone on the other side that was there to hurt you or wanted in that isn't stopping htem.
#9 to #8 - peneculo (08/23/2013) [-]
Perhaps it was an ex-girlfriend? Or someone who isn't likely to break in, however given the opportunity would have entered.

And regardless, even if it wouldn't stop them, it could give you an extra ten seconds after you slam the door shut again and lock it in order for you to hide and call the police.

Even if it doesn't help, it's better to be over prepared than under prepared.

Also **** arguing on the internet, it's like being in the special Olympics, even if you win, you've lost in life. I'm out, enjoy your day.
User avatar #10 to #9 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
If you piss off your ex to the point where she wants to hurt you you probably deserve it.

If they really wanted in you wouldn't get to slam the door on them they'd just come in when you had the door open.

It dosen't keep you prepared for anything just give you a false tastes of security
#25 to #10 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
You have proven to know nothing about security. Leave.

I know that is a horrible lock that wouldn't stop anyone from anything.
#27 to #26 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
It is not a lock. It is there so you are able to open the door to speak out without it being completely open.
User avatar #28 to #27 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
there is no need for that. That is the single most pointless thing I've ever seen.
#29 to #28 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
It has more uses than you would think.
It also adds an extra layer of stability should someone try to ram the door in.
User avatar #30 to #29 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
2 tiny ass screws in the trim around you door adds nothing. You push on the door and then things come right out. If you don't ripe the screw out of the hole it's self the trim will come off. Trim is put up with tiny ass little nails. It adds nothing but cluttering up your door with a bunch of **** you don't need.
#31 to #30 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
It all adds up. Those things help more than they look like.
User avatar #32 to #31 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
they don't at all. The avenger door trim thinness is 3/4 in. (1.9 cm) after looking up at lest 20 different types of them the screws that come with them all are 1/2 in. (1.3). A couple of tiny ass 1/2 in screws would stop a 10 year old form getting in there.

The only thing that would ever be useful for is if you got a big ass dog and wanna leave your door open they wouldn't be able to get out that way.

#33 to #32 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
They do. It's about physics and the way forces behave when they have more than one point where resistance comes from. That things takes away from the main lock so that the main lock doesn't have to withstand alone. That's why those screws won't come off.
User avatar #34 to #33 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
They are useless they help with nothing. Put a slandered door lock and one of them things on a door would be no harder than braking opens open a door with just a slandered lock. The only difference would be you will most likely pull the trim off the wall. If you have more than one slandered lock or deal bolt there would be huge difference. No amount of them lock or the types with the chain will ever make difference other than if you had more than one the door trim would come off easier if anything you make easier to get in with them.
#35 to #34 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
No, that's wrong. They take away force from the main lock so that the main lock isn't the only thing withstanding the force. Learn some physics.
User avatar #36 to #35 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
Lean some carpentry. I use physics in carpentry all the time. If them locks used something like 4 or 5 inch screw and were drilled into the 2x4 that support the door way then it would actually make a difference but being they don't' and they tiny little screws it makes no difference.

#37 to #36 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
You are not pushing against a lock. You are pushing against a lock and that thing, buying you time.
It's a cheap as security measurement, but it works for what it costs.

So I'm being a turd by saying the truth??
#15 to #14 - danzey (08/23/2013) [-]
Look at how trivial it is, it doesn't hurt to have that extra thing so why are you so butthurt about it? It isnt a lock, people don't substitute it for a lock, it's an extra.
User avatar #16 to #15 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
except i'm not butthurt at all.
#18 to #16 - danzey (08/23/2013) [-]
So you agree it's trivial, and by how much you have replied and how aggressive you are I assumed you were butthurt.
User avatar #19 to #18 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
Where is there aggressiveness in anything that I've said??

That right there, that's aggressive, I don't really want to come back to this everytime you reply, so I'm logging out and won't be responding.
User avatar #24 to #22 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/23/2013) [-]
That was a question. There was no aggressiveness there. I am asking a question about what you think I said that was aggressive.

all of the hotels i've been to have them, it's not the only lock, it's kinda like having the chain on the door
#40 to #39 - isbak (08/23/2013) [-]
I never seen a lock that like in any of the hotels ive been in, only the electronic locks. Is it an American thing?
#43 to #40 - anon (08/23/2013) [-]
Not really hotels as much as cheap little motels.
Most hotels also have electronic locks, with a simple chain if you don't want room service bothering you.
#46 to #43 - gmshini (08/23/2013) [-]
I actually work at two different hotels, and we have these and a deadbolt on the doors, plus the key card reader. We have a tool made to open these types of locks, and luckily I haven't had to use it, but one of my coworkers did because a little kid locked himself in by accident. It's honestly not that different from a lock and chain.

We used to have one like this, untill I pulled the door shut too hard, and the lock got bumped on the door while nobody was home.
I had to break the door open (the lock was old, thank god) and we had to get a new front door.
