Re: Bear Resistant Door.


Curious, was this cheaper than a security door? I lived in a house one time that had a screen door called "bank vault" that when you turned the key, pins would go into the frame on all four sides (8 pins total) like a deadbolt. When I went to get a key that's how I discovered the dang door cost $1200. Just the lock was $150

This wasn't cheaper than that.

Nearby house had bear get into car by pulling door open, bear got in, door closed bear could not get out. Destroyed car until someone opened the door. Bent the steering column like a pretzel.

If they want to get in they will get in.
