Video doorbells, like Amazon’s Ring Video Doorbell, are great for homeowners who are looking for added security. Most doorbell mounts, however, require tools and drilling to install. Of course, if you’re a renter or live in a dorm, that’s probably not gonna fly with your landlord. But don’t fret, there’s a solution.
This no-drill Doorbell Boa doorbell mount simply clips onto your door. It sounds almost too easy — but really, that’s it. In fact, the mount has become so popular on TikTok, it’s sold out on Amazon several times.

The Doorbell Boa wraps around a door’s edge, so when the door is shut, no one can remove it. However, to attach it, you must have a swinging door that’s no more than two inches thick. The mount comes with foam inserts that you can adjust for snug fit.
Now, you may be thinking, what would stop someone from just running off with your video doorbell? Well, its anti-theft lock holds onto it tight, so you don’t have to worry about local pranksters or actual thieves snatching it.
The Doorbell Boa is compatible with battery-operated video doorbells. Those include the Ring 1, Ring 2, Ring 3, Arlo, Blink and Eufy video doorbells. It will also work with any other video doorbells that are a maximum of four inches wide, 6.5 inches tall and 1.75 inches thick.
And if you move apartments, you can easily take your video doorbell and Doorbell Boa with you.
“Perfect for renters!” wrote one Amazon reviewer, who said they live in a rented apartment. “Let me tell you — this is the best idea ever! It fits the door well and protects the ring from being stolen or messed with. I’m able to feel protected and able to watch out for my Amazon packages! 11/10 recommended!!”
“So impressed! I saw this on TikTok and thought I would give it a try,” wrote another Amazon reviewer. “Installation was a breeze — although, it can just be a little difficult placing it on the door, as you do need some strength to open it wide enough to slip over the door. I definitely recommend this product.”
The Doorbell Boa retails for $39.99 on Amazon. Considering the benefits — like peace of mind and the likelihood of getting your security deposit back — it’s worth every penny.
