a little larger to accommodate the swing of the door.
Great product. Performs as described. I am ordering a second set.
Perhaps glue/stick a thumb tack on the stud part. When you close the door, the tack will be exactly on the receiving side that you need to drill out.
Leaves a huge whole in the door or jamb once it is taken out....
Saw some reviews that there were some problems with the install of this product. I screwed in the security pin, after predrilling the hole to fit the threaded pin, in the existing hinge and made a 3/8 hole in the opposite hinge (corresponding hole) and it worked fine. Had to make the hole slightly larger on one of the hinges due to a little rub when closing the door. Took 15 minutes to install.
Better then expected! Thanks.
