So today I changed that I ordered these Bolo Stick Patio door safety pins. Took me literally 5 minutes to install them both, no more big ugly stick and now I have a clean look with a safety pin that's solid steel and stronger than the piece of wood ever was protecting my home! Best part it's made in the USA!"
