Learn Home Security and Door Security with Ken Jensen of The Prepper Podcast and Robert Dieguez of Strikeplate Locks.


Strike Plate Lock

STRIKEPLATE LOCK Offers Extensive Strength and Security.

Who is Robert Dieguez? What is Strike Plate Locks?


Strike Plate Lock



Robert Dieguez is a retired Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff with 22 years of service and obviously is the inventor of the Strikeplate Lock.

Strike Plate Locks are a patent pending home security measure meant to defend against brute force entry of a home.





Ken asks Robert questions about home security, detailed suggestions on how to secure all of your weak points, door security and his product, Strike Plate Locks.

Tell me a little about yourself and how you got into the home security business and more specifically the inventing and the founding of strike plate locks.

Many different entry points into a home and how someone would typically enter through those points?

What are some of the best things we can do to “close the gaps” in our security measures?

Suggestions on the best products to use for:

  • Cameras
  • Alarm Systems
  • Lighting
  • Windows or Glass Doors
  • Locks and Doors (We will go a little further into this in a minute)
  • Sliding Doors
  • Safes
    • In ground, in wall, in wall but pylons driven to ground?
  • Pepper Spray and Tasers
  • Garage Doors

Why are doors, which are meant to keep things out, so weak?

WHY a hinged piece of metal is so much stronger that the typical setup…

The ease of Lock installation.

Suggestions for the strike plate lock:

  1. During the stamping process of the strike plate portion, have a hook coming off of the top, so there is a place to hang the loop and to keep it out of the way.
  2. Come up with a better solution to the ‘screw dilemma.’  Maybe a putty that hardens in place and needs heat treatment (blowdryer) to remove.  I have a link to tamper resistant screws that you may want to include with your lock upon request.
  3. One problem I can see with this lock is children.  I have one that loves to lock doors, including those that will keep family members outside.  I will never get back inside my house
