I bought a package of two at Ollie's for $7.99.
They are very well-made, incredibly easy to install (took about one minute) and they work great. I usually don't trust anything that is labeled "as seen on TV." However, Ollie's had a good refund policy so I thought I'd try them out. I was satisfied 100%, and I went back to Ollie's and bought another set.
I use them on my sliding door, instead of one of those wooden bars, which for some reason are a pain in the neck to me. My little dog enjoys going out to the screened-in porch, so I open the door about five inches and lock it there. Nice doggy door. And I use them for windows where my cat sits. I raise the window about three or four inches and lock it.
It seems very, very strong, and an average person can't budge it, in my opinion. Of course, I've never done professional testing on it!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I cannot even begin to tell you of my many negative experiences with this company. In fact, I cannot tell you: I am afraid to write my review because nowadays companies like this one will sue! Just check other reviews of this company or ask about them on your community Facebook or Nextdoor. Go on Yelp. You can decide for yourself.
