The MINI Door Shields do not hug the edge of the door. There appears to be about 1/8-inch of space on either side of the Door Shield.
MINI Door Shields are designed to fit doors that are 1-3/4-inch thick. If doors are any thinner or thicker than 1-3/4-inches thick, you must use our PRO Door Shields, which will fit doors of just about any thickness. One note of caution, if your door is 1-3/8-inches thick, you have an interior door. Our Jamb Shield and Hinge Shields will also not fit this Door. For 1-3/8-inch doors you must use a Door Armor Safe Room Kit!
