Reader Photos

Category: Door Closers,Egress,Locks & KeysLori @ 1:56 am Comments (5)

I’m still spending my Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday nights at town meeting, so I REALLY appreciate all of the great photos that have been sent in lately.

Here are a couple of Schlage keypad locks, sent in by Steve Hornyak of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies.  I love these locks and I have one on my front door, but TWO??

From Jeff Tock of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, here are 2 pics of a 1950’s era bomb shelter door.  In the second photo, the closer arm is being held out away from the door.

And from Chuck Noble of Certified Fire Door, an egress door that has been painted to match the landscape scene in the hallway.  It looks beautiful, but it’s not acceptable to paint an egress door in this way, as it can make it difficult for someone to find the exit.  Not to mention the double locks.

    The Schlage Keypad lock is Installed upside down 🙂

    On the top picture with the double locks, I also have one of these locks on my back door. However, in this picture the lock itself is installed upside down. Guess they did not have room to mount it correctly with the deadbolt so close. If you look closely or increase your view, you can see that the numbers are upside down. The real amazing thing is that the inside lock case is installed correctly with the thumb turn above the handle. I would not have thought that this would be possible, but there it is.
    It would be tough to use the same 4 digit # for both locks because the #’s are not in the same location. I would program corresponding buttons and not really pay much attention to the #’s themselves.
    Interesting installation, thanks for the pictures Steve.

    I was just hoping that it was not the result of an overly agressive res sales representative. LOL
