BUY London Bar
The Kickstop London Bar is a door frame reinforcing bar with a 'D' shaped staple to fit over and secure the staple (keep) of a surface fitted rim lock or cylinder nightlatch. This very effective steel anti-burglary device is screwed on to the internal face of the lock side of the frame and will resist the kicking, splitting and forcing open of the door. It could blend in with the colour of the frame and is available in a choice of length, width and staple size
Kickstop Bars are manufactured from specially rolled superior grade, 5mm thick solid steel bar with rounded sides. Each fixing hole is a countersunk hole to ensure that the countersunk screw heads can be fitted flush with the surface of the flat bar
Kickstop London Bars are manufactured from one continual length of high grade steel - and have no unsightly welding
A packet of 2 1/2" long, No. 10 countersunk hardened steel woodscrews is supplied.
When fitting the Longer London Bars, a little of the top or the bottom of the bar will probably need to be removed when fitting - by cutting with a hacksaw
Very carefully check that the London Bar has the appropriate staple size that you need to fit over the staple/keep of the nightlatch or rim lock
The lock staple (also known as the keep) is the part that is fitted to the door frame. The surface mounted lock latches into this - when the door is closed
Most of the bars are available in three lengths and two widths of steel
