During the Pandemic Lockdown, we had so many break-ins on apartment buildings. They’re stealing the mail, they’re after the GST, they’re after the checks, they’re after whatever checks are coming in. We know for the next several months there’s gonna be a lot of people getting checks, so all the mailboxes getting broken into, we’ve secured this door better. It’s with an astragal. It will stop them from prying. They got the cameras have caught the people. Not caught, they videoed them breaking in. They’re just using little pry bars. They’re spreading the door. With the security plate, it stops them from spreading the door. So, it’s called an astragal or a security plate, whatever you want. This is made out of steel, it is a full length, and it slows them down from prying open the door.

We have had so many break-ins on apartment buildings that are stealing the mail. The criminal are after the GST cheques and trying to steal ID. We know for the next several months, there is going to be a lot of people getting checks, so all the mailboxes are getting broken into. We have secured this door better. It’s with Astragal Security Plate. It will prevent the criminals from prying the gap between the doors. The security camera has caught people on video, not caught, they video them breaking in. They are just using little pry bars they’re spreading the door. With these security plates, it stops them from spreading the door. It is called an Astragal or called a security plate, whatever you want. This is made out of steel. It’s a full length, and it slows them down from prying open the door. This is a typical apartment building and we have a rash, always a rash of break-ins.

To install the Astragal / Security Plate we are going remove all the hardware, and install a full-length Astragal. Remove all the existing hard, door push plates, bars and on some install we remove the lock too. This door has an electronic access control system so we are not reinstalling the door cylinder and in this case they only had a dummy cylinder. I like to install the top of the security plate and let gravity help to line up and mark the holes. I prefer to use sex bolts because it makes a nice flush mount. Do not use pop rivets to secure the plate to the door.
