Pennsylvania Man Invents a New Tool in Home Defense That Can be Used by Anyone

Erie-area inventor now offering door protection system to reduce break-ins without the need of a firearm.

Montpelier, VT, April 01, 2018 --( Today, Douglas Gerzina, Eerie, Pennsylvania inventor and founder of D & G Innovations, Inc., announced that his home security tool, "Door Defense" will be available to consumers beginning on April 2, 2018 on Kickstarter. Door Defense is an innovative doorframe reinforcement that makes residential exterior doors virtually impenetrable. Door Defense fits seamlessly into the existing doorframe, requiring just ten minutes of time and no special skills for installation.

Twenty percent of all Americans will experience a home invasion this year, and most of these break-ins occur through the exterior door. Door Defense is unique in that it runs the entire length of the doorframe, allowing for full-coverage reinforcement. Gerzina designed and manufactured Door Defense with strength as its primary consideration, and tests have shown that it can easily withstand the force of a demolition sledgehammer.
