To increase security for your doors, an often overlooked project. Replace the 3/4 inch screws in both the strike plate AND hinges with either 2 1/2 or 3 inch #8 screws. Although an impact driver makes driving easier, using your drill with the clutch set between 15 and 22 will keep you from over driving and damaging your soft wood frame.
