    ya I have one

    basically it you rotate the bars (it's made of 2 bars) it expands it...imagine a screw on a nut...but 2 bars

    what you do it put it between the door and expand it...and you have to expand so it pushs out REAL hard, but it grabs on...it kind of bent my doorframe a bit, not enough to visually notice but the door is kind of loose :hs:

    I weight 190 and I have no problems with it

    You twist it, it applies lateral pressure to the door frame.

    You know why they tell you during a tornado to get under a door frame if you have no basement?

    Cause door frames are strong.

    it looked fine during the first couple years, but went really downhill really fast thereafter
