Question How to fasten this a tile floor?

Amazon.com: Security Door Brace / Door Brace. Stops Home Invasions & Burglars. The OnGARD Door Brace Withstands up to 1775 Lbs of Violent Force. Not a Nightlock Nitelock: Everything Else

The homepage of OnGARD says it comes with woodscrews for fastening to a wood floor. But if installing in tile have a contract professional install it.

Is there a way for a non pro homeownder like me to do the job?

The tile in entryway in front of front door is a polished glaze ceramic tile.

Thanks!

They make special drill bits for drilling thru tile. I would think if you drilled thru the tile and then used a long enough wood screw to secure it thru the subfloor - that should work.
Wait and see what some of the others have to say

The subfloor is concrete.

Tap cons work in concrete but I don't know if they would work with your bracket/latch.

I would look at another option like the Strikemaster. Drilling in the tile and into the concrete below may not provide the strength needed.
