Addalock Set of 2 Portable Security Door Locks
Complete Peace of Mind!
These are AWESOME! Since I live in an apartment and cannot add dead-bolts or other security features, I figured these would be perfect. I was right! They are not hard to get the hang of, and work exactly as advertised! Brilliant invention!!
I got these and returned them. Did not work for me as advertised but I really like the concept. Hopefully the newer versions next year will be better.
Waste of money, did not fit!!
It did not fit on the door of the mobile home of my daughters which was the main reason I bought it. Very dissatified since I did not keep the paperwork or box to return them. Waste of money!!!
It is such a comfort to have these locks on the garage /utility room and the front door. You know that you have security while at home. Was so easy to use on my doors and highly recommend for peace of security.
Not Happy at all
I bought these thinking that it would be good for a little added protection. I tried to install it on my front door and it didn't fit at all. Waste of my time and money ordering this and it didn't work. Wish I would have read the other reviews that said that it might not fit all doors. This will be going back.
Bought these because we live in a older home and the locks are a bit iffy at times. I followed directions (easy) and once I got the knack (only took a couple of tries) they were installed and worked just as promised. Easy to put on and also for piece of mind easy to remove in an emergency. Takes a bit of practice at first to put the metal part in the bolt hole and slide the door over it, but it took only a little time before I was able to do it quickly with no problem.
I put this on my door and had to take the door off to get out. The ADDALOCK ARE GOING BACK.
Offers A Little Peace of Mind
I bought my original ones several years ago and was wishing I'd bought more because I could not find them on QVC anymore. I was so delighted to see them back and ordered two more sets. I use these on every outside door of my home and gave a set to my daughter. These are probably not the absolute best door defense against break-ins, but I think they are some added protection and that's what I was looking for. We all know that deadbolts weaken a door (if the plunger doesn't go deep into the stud). If you're looking for that little bit of added protection I think these fit the bill. They're well made and easy to use and NO drilling or cutting into the door frame. Simple!!
One worked on one door, but not on the other door (that's why I gave only 4 stars); but nevertheless, I will give one as a gift and hope it works for them in their house. Also, I hope to buy another set or two to give as gifts, especially to people who stay in hotels. I do hope that they will work on hotel room doors for them, as well as for myself. I would like to add: be patient when trying to insert it into the side of your door frame. Once you get use to it, you will see it is a great invention. This could be a great stocking stuffer or anytime gift for friends and family.
Bought this item to help secure back door. I have an old house so while it did work on the backdoor entry, it did not work an the door I had bought item for. But it does a good job when it does fit the frame work. So I have to give it a 4.
got 2 sets
use one in my basement door, one on my front door.
gave one to an elderly friend who is so pleased with added security.
keeping the last one for traveling. as a solo female i like the idea of additional security that i control.
thanks for the item!
BEST PURCHASE MADE THIS YEAR!!!!!!
I was so glad to have seen this presentation on the Addalock, I said, 'ah ha'!. This is what I was looking for concerning a situation with my mother. So glad these were purchased, ordered two sets (one for her and one for myself). Since receiving an using in my home, have felt much safer, I live by myself. An I am much more comfortable having this Addalock in my mother's home. I WOULD RECOMMEND THESE FOR ANYONE WHO IS SINGLE, WIDOWED OR FAMILY WITH SMALL CHILDREN. Because once you have the lock in correctly, you can not get the door open and that's a wonderful feeling of being more secure in your home. Actually would give this invention a rating of 10++++ It would work great for your daughter who is going off to college, boarding school or traveling abroad. It give more than a little bit of security..... Happy Dance, Happy Dance
