Time-Out Lock

psyche-lockOne of our customers sent me this photo last week.  It was found on a psychiatric facility and to operate it, a staff member must be present and holding the bolt projected via the lever.  I did my best to track down a manufacturer with no luck.  It’s possible that it was made in a machine shop or that it is no longer available, but my first thought when I saw it was that I need to buy 3 for my kids’ rooms and then find 3 suckers to stand there holding the bolts projected.  😉

    Hi, stumbled across your site. Did you know Securitech makes a multi-point lock similar to this?

    Very good site. I love pics of crazy hardware installations.
