Which door security bar did we buy for our daughter's dorm? This one....

My last post discussed 3 options for door security.  I thought I'd do a quick fly-by update to say we did indeed pick one and it was this one:

Master Lock 265DCCSEN Dual-Function Security Bar

  • Dual function door security bar for hinged and sliding doors
  • Adjusts from 27-1/2in (70cm) - 42in (1.1m) to fit most standard doors and sliding patio doors
  • Top piece removes for sliding door application
  • Rugged 20 gauge steel construction, Padded foot provides sure grip without scratching
  • Pivoting ball joint assures full contact with floor

This is the one she really wanted as one of her friends owns this particular style and loved it - it was easy to use and worked great.  Our daughter was familiar with it and knew it worked.  We were able to get ours at our local Lowe's - which they had 6 at the time.  Two days later they were OUT as it seems to be a popular college dorm item for people to buy.  Check your local Lowe's first but if you can't find one - the link above goes to Amazon and you can order it for about the same price.
