A good home security tip that you may have never thought about.... Most contractors install the plates with the supplied screws which are only a half inch long and come out with one kick by a burglar. Instead install 4 inch screws in their place that go through the door frame and into the framing of the house.  They can kick for a long time before they get tired! You can see in the picture the screw supplied with the door hardware. Making a burglar make a bunch of noise and be foiled in their initial plan can not only give you time to arm yourself but they will most likely move on to an easier target.

I actually worked as a locksmith for 3 years and this is a great tip!  I would recommend screws at least twice as long as provided as a minimum.  Also you have to make sure you have the wood behind it to make good use of the longer screws, if you don't then why not?  Cheap...
