I am so happy I discovered this product. I live in a rented room where there is no lock and I didn't want to request the owner to drill the lock for me. So, this product has been a savior for me. I can finally sleep in peace without having to worry about anyone trying to open the door when I am inside the room. It is super simple to use and also comes with a good manual. It also came with a small red pouch so I am definitely planning to carry it during my travels and use it at hotels or motels. I am very happy with this purchase.
This is exactly what I wanted for myself to provide an extra sense of security. As a single female renter I always felt a little concerned about the maintenance guys, office staff, previous tenants and any number of other service providers that had keys to easily enter my apartment. While I doubt this little gem will stop anyone who is bound and determined to gain access regardless of the consequences, I do believe it will deter those that attempt entry who want to go unnoticed. It installed super easily. It took me longer to remove it from the packaging than it did to install it. I definitely recommend this to everyone who rents.
I never write reviews but after receiving this and trying it out, I was so impressed that I had to share. This took all of 1 minute to setup and after pulling hard on the door, and it held firm. We use this on an interior door that doesn't currently have a lock on it. So simple to use and should hopefully prevent us from being surprised in the night by someone breaking in via the basement and sneaking up to the main floor of the house without us knowing.

I purchased two of these, one for my apartment door and one for travel.
Home: this fits perfectly on my front door. It was tested when the maintenance man at my building showed up earlier than expected. He knocked, and before I could get to the door, he was already trying to open the door AND COULD NOT. This held, and he really pushing. I know someone can get in if they really are determined, but the level of noise they'd cause would alert neighbors and give me time to react. Exactly what I bought it for.
Hotel: I've stayed in one hotel and this did fit. It was loose in the door jamb, but once the door was closed, it didn't budge when I tested it.
Nothing is 100% secure. But this device definitely makes my door more secure then the lock and chain do! I highly recommend for anyone in an apartment and travelers. I practiced taking the lock off to be sure I could do it in a fire. It takes less than 3 seconds to set up and remove. Very happy with purchase.
I want everyone to know this really works and was the most satisfying purchase I ever made! I was worried about getting what I paid for and if it was going to be durable, but I did and it was!
