Don-Jo offers high quality hardware products and have a goal to provide a wide range of products, such as replacement strikes, latch protectors, security strikes, filler plates, scar plates, door stops, door pulls, push/pull plates, kickplates and wrap around door reinforcers (which we offer on our site). Don Jo wrap arounds or door reinforcers are mainly used to add extra security and door reinforcement to your handleset or knobset. To help against people trying to kick, hammer or whatever other kind of attack to get in your door - to help keep your home safe. Sometimes like it or not, homes are broken into and if that is the case for you these wrap arounds are also a great fix to reinforce doors that may have been damaged due to forced entry. We have two styles of Don-Jo wrap arounds on our site. The first one is the Don-Jo Classic Wrap Around, which is a single bore wrap around and is made for a 2 1/8"" bore hole. The dimensions for this wrap around are 4"" x 4 1/2"" (for 2 3/8"" backset) or 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" (for 2 3/4" backset). The finishes available for the Classic wrap around are polished brass, oil rubbed bronze and silver (like satin chrome). The other style of wrap around is the Don-Jo Double Bore Wrap Around. The double bore is made with two 2 1/8" bore holes and they measure 5 1/2" CC (center to center). The dimensions are 4" x 12" (for 2 3/8" backset), or 4 1/4" x 12" (for 2 3/4" backset). The finishes that are available for the double bore style are silver, polished brass, antique brass, and oil rubbed bronze. Don Jo wrap arounds or door reinforcers are designed to be used on standard door thicknesses such as 1 3/4" or 1 3/8" thick doors. They also offer either 2 3/8" backset or 2 3/4" backset sizes and you will need to specify both door thickness and backset when ordering. These are not always in stock, so make sure and allow about 2 weeks before the items are able to ship. *Please let us know if you can't find what you are looking for, we may just not have it on our site yet but can still order it by phone.
