Very Sturdy: As other reviewers have noted, Buddy Bar is all steel while the competition is made of aluminum. What they failed to mention is that competing products have key parts made of cheap plastic, such as the piece that holds the door handle. Our Master Lock model had this piece break on us; to our knowledge there was no significant stress exerted on it. Buddy Bar does not suffer this weakness. Also like the Masterlock model, Buddy Bar can be used as a makeshift bat when needed.
Stable: Buddy Bar seems to hold well on wood and tile floors. I did not try it on carpet, but I would guess judging from the design that it would be fine on carpet as well.
Easy to use: Like its Master Lock door bar cousin and similar products, Buddy Bar is easy to adjust.
No installation required: Unlike some door security products like OnGARD, a floor door brace, there is no need to call a contractor to install the Buddy Bar. You also won't have to worry about having the right type of floor for installation
Better locking mechanism: While not fool proof, the Buddy Bar locking mechanism is better than its Master Lock cousins. It will either totally stop someone or it will buy you additional precious minutes. To my knowledge burglars are already familiar enough with Master Lock's door brace, where it will only slow them down for approx 8-15 minutes. Buddy Bar will buy you even more time.Read more ›
An elderly friend of ours had her apartment broken into (luckily the punks ran when they realized she was home)with one push on her front door that promptly snapped her cheap door jammer in half like a twig. At first I thought maybe she installed it wrong, but when I checked the one on her rear door it was set up correctly. With her permission, I had my 17 year old football player son attempt to push in her back door while I watched. First it slid a little on the floor before catching, and then it popped right out of the base!
I decided maybe she needed some help picking out a better safety system. After seeing that lots of the the products here had the same issues (for the life of me I can't see how the positive reviews have actually ever tested to see if the thing works!), I went on to google buddybar doorjammers (it wasn't on Amazon yet). A friend of mine who lives in Phoenix, Arizona actually has this system.
I read through the website and of course was skeptical. FIFTY DOLLARS? Come on! But then I read that it was made of steel, not aluminum, and the interlocking teeth that set it in place logically seemed more sturdy than the slide pole-in-pole with a little tab popping through a hole system. (If you've ever had a pool, you know exactly what this system is - and how often those stupid little plastic tabs break off as you're trying to attach the net to the skimmer pole. I can't tell you how many nets I've gone through!Read more ›
For both bars I did the following test: I put them on my front doors, which are a double set of doors, where the second door has slide bar locks at the top and bottom and the main door has a standard door knob that fits into the second door. The floor by my door is wood (just so you know what the foot was on). After installing the security bar and unlocking the front door I went outside through another door. I had the doorknob turned so it was only the security bar holding the door shut. I kept giving it very solid pushes with my shoulder for about 20 sec. I kept trying to see if I could knock the bar loose by repeated quick pushes (putting most of my weight into it) and quickly releasing.
For the Master Lock bar the door itself was giving some, I noticed the area right by the knob (where the bar is) was giving a little.Read more ›
