2×4 Bar Holder Brackets for Door Barricade, Fence, Barn, or Shed – Security Bar


Door Barricade Open Bar Holder for 2×4 Secure Bar is used with a inexpensive wood 2×4. This is a clever design that consumes 1/2 the space that conventional 2×4 secure bar holders consume.


This Door Barricade Open Bar Holder for 2×4 Security Bars is different from what you might find in Lowes and Home Depot. This is because you can install this secure bar holder bracket on a SINGLE width of a 2×4!

Most of the 2×4 bar holders I have seen other secure bar holders that require a width of at least a 2×6 or 2×8 to install correctly.

The compact installation width of this bracket for Door Barricade Open Bar Holder for 2×4 Secure Bar ( Soporte de barra 2×4 ) helps to keep your front door (barra de seguridad de la puerta delantera), fence, gates and barns looking neat as a pin.

Uses of Door Barricade Open Bar Holder for 2×4 Secure Bar:

  • Shed Door Barricade Bracket: Secure outdoor latch for a shed, barn, gate, garden using a secure bar
  • Compare to the much larger Chinese made National Hardware N100-792 or N351-503
  • Compare to the much larger Chinese made Stanley Hardware 235309
  • secure outdoor latch for a gate
  • You could make sections of a fence reconfigurable/removable by using these 2×4 secure bar holders. By putting screws in the bigger holes your horses/cattle would not be able to push the 2×4 out!
  • Storm shutter keeper or Storm shutter protector:
    • Put 2×4 secure bar over your shutters when closed and put a screw through the hole to withstand the worst of storms.
    • A hurricane or tropical storm can VIBRATE boards loose with its wind. So you need to put keeper screws in through the big holes into the 2×4 and that will keep it from vibrating out.
    • For protecting your house’s windows and doors from hurricane or tropical storm winds, you would put these 2×4 bar holder brackets in place. Then put up plywood covering what you want to protect, then put a 2×4 across to hold in place. You can even put a bracket at the bottom of the plywood to rest on as well.
  • Panic Room Door Barricade Bracket: Use to create a panic room in your house or to secure your house better than a regular lock/deadbolt.
    • (how? because it makes people’s kicking force be spread across the whole door instead of concentrated on the normal lock.)
    • Door barricade works if door opens OUT by putting secure bar holder bracket on the DOOR and not the door frame!
