It’s a good thing it’s Wordless Wednesday, because I’m running out of words. Thank you to RB Sontag of Allegion for the photos.
Two Lori dead bolt installed on the door
Not occupied yet so door does not have to be unlocked !!!
How do we know it’s not occupied? Someone took the picture.
truly – what inspector even saw this, what were the owners thinking. 3 locks plus the security bar & Mag lock. 2 of the deadlocks are double cylinder.
The multiple locking devices would be problematical unless they’ve been deactivated. If none of the other devices were problematical, would the numbered seal like that be a problem if it broke easily enough, and the door otherwise operated smoothly enough, that the total force to open the door and break the seal was within limits?
I like the emergency egress plan that’s taped over the conduit. I guess there was a maximum distance from the door that it could located at…Then there’s the extra roll of tape on the fire extinguisher.
That’s an armature plate, and a magnet mounting plate, but there is not a magnet installed.
This is nuts.
This is glorious.
The bar that says “Lift Up” is bolted in place, I wonder where the wrench is to remove the nuts. I hope needs out in a hurry!
Nice to see these new classroom devices that drive Lori crazy being used in other applications.
Sorry, I just HAVE to! It’s another Elliott spec! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
I’m cracking up over the two dead bolts installed backwards (no screws showing) and obvious thru bolted edge guards next to them. All I can say is WOW!
Someone sold a lot of hardware on one door…..Unbelieveable….I thought I had seen everything….
Gee this looks like the typical homeless depot or some other big box place tired if being ripped off . However in fairness if in fact that some of the hardware was deactivated it should have been removed and cover plates provided . The barrier bar is another story .lol. I just love clueless wonders ..

You can see one of the holes in the bottom picture
