The Titan Door Chain is a high leverage chain designed by a police officer for use on virtually any door to make it extremely difficult for an intruder to enter room/building. If you add it to your door and open the door a crack to see what's on the other side, it's been configured to resist virtually all forms of force—including 600-plus pounds of weight. This door chain comes in three different shades, including gold, silver, and bronze, and installation is meant to be quick, with no drilling required.
The cost of Titan Door Chain is $19.95 plus $6.95 shipping, for a total price of $26.90.

To add a Titan Door Chain to a particular door in your home, you'll first need to remove the door's original strike plate and the screws that are holding it in place. You may want to keep these things on hand afterward since you might someday find them useful to add to another door.
After you've removed the old strike plate and screws, it'll be time to attach your Titan Door Chain to the place your old strike plate inhabited. To do so, you'll need the two included security screws, measuring 2.5 inches each, and a screwdriver.
Once you've screwed your new chain securely in place, you'll need to slide the chain's large ring over your doorknob or door handle. When you're done doing that, if you've installed the chain with no errors, you should be able to close your door fully again. You should be able to proceed with opening it as usual, too.
Testing has shown that the Titan Door Chain is capable of withstanding 600 or more pounds of weight. On the other hand, there are some ordinary door chains that may not be able to withstand the force of an average-sized child's body weight. In order to break this chain on you, two or three heavily built intruders would need to team up and ram themselves against your door, and they still might not be successful. This chain's strength is partly due to its design, but also due to the large links that make up its body.
If you've been using this chain on one door, but you decide that you want to move it to another, that's completely doable. You'll just need to remove it from the first door and transfer it to the second by completing the installation process again. As long as none of the chain's components break, you'll be able to reuse the same chain on as many doors as you'd like.
The Titan Door Chain comes in gold, silver, and bronze, so you'll be able to choose the shade you like best or the one that complements the color of your door the most. If you opt to obtain more than one of these chains for different doors in your home, you may want to get one or two in each shade, for variety's sake.
This door chain will help keep you safe within your home because potential intruders will find it so incredibly difficult (or impossible!) to break through it. Even if a trespasser were to take a knife to the links, they still might not be able to break them, while the knife might make short work of a chain with smaller, flimsier links. Due to the extra protection that a strong chain like this can provide, you won't need to worry as much about your kids or others in your household as you lie in bed at night.
To install a Titan Door Chain, only one tool, a screwdriver, will be required. You won't need to work with a drill to install this type of chain at all. Therefore, even people who are inexperienced with home repairs, renovations, building, and the like will probably be able to attach one of these chains to their door with success. Plus, if you're a student living in a small apartment and don't have a drill lying around, you won't need to make an effort to get your hands on one for this task.
An alternative to installing one of these door chains would be getting a digital alarm system to help protect you from intruders. This kind of alarm system would require electricity to operate, though, and after installing it, you might notice your electricity bill rising over time. Furthermore, a digital alarm system typically won't allow you to discriminate between wanted and unwanted people who approach your home—it'll alert you if anyone approaches closely. On the flip side, your Titan Door Chain will allow you to view someone who has approached without letting them in.
The Titan Door Chain is compatible with nearly all doors in the world, but if your door has a handle that's super-long or super-wide, its ring may not fit over that. You'll still be able to install one of these chains, but you'll need to take the extra step of changing your door's handle first, which could prove to be arduous for some people.
It's great that this door chain can be attached to nearly all doors. However, it would be even better if it could be used on windows, too, or if a chain of the same type could be created for windows. Unfortunately, you won't be able to use a Titan Door Chain on a window at this point, since the design of any given window won't include a place for a strike plate.
When installing one of these chains, don't use any screws aside from the ones that have been included with it, even if they seem to fit. Opting to use other screws instead of the included security screws will, logically, diminish the strength and security of your chain. If you happen to lose one or both screws for some reason, you should contact the company that manufactures these door chains in order to try and obtain a single one or a set.
If the chain on your door gets broken frequently, whether that's due to careless children, large dogs or actual intruders, you'll need to replace it just as frequently to stay safe. Replacing your door chain on a regular basis may no longer be necessary once you start using the Titan Door Chain, though. It'll likely withstand the force of any animal or person and may last you for decades before you'll need to think about a replacement. If you move to a different home, you might even find that it's in good enough shape to remove and bring along with you. On a slightly different note, aside from not having to replace your door's chain very often, you probably won't have to replace stolen possessions, either, as the chain will stop virtually all thieves.

I ordered two of the Titian door chains on June 30 but yesterday I was told that all orders were canceled because they had more orders than the product. Is this true or is there a chance I could still get my order.
