Rick Jermain of Allegion sent me this Fixed-it Friday photo.  Very cute.  Nice panic hardware too.  😀

    A blatant propping if there ever was one.

  2. Raymond Holman, AHC says:

    At least they were clever about it.

    I hope the prop perp is apprehended.

  4. Jerry Richmond AHC/CDC says:

    And the lite kit is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too high for ADA!

  5. Alan Itzkowitz says:

    At least that didn’t prop it open in a way that would damage any part of the door or its hardware.

  6. Harry says:

    Looks properly propped to me

  7. Pete Schifferli says:

    Good place for a door prop alarm like Detex EAX-300. Allows normal exit but alarm sounds if door is not closed within field adjustable time of 1 second to 4 minutes. Might be an electrical option Allegion should consider offering on Von Duprin 98/99 exit devices?

  8. Mike Elia says:

    Nothing like propping with a prop, even when the sign says ‘do not prop’, it doesn’t specifically say ‘do not prop with a prop’ and I wonder if the other prop blades are available or are in use as props elsewhere [even if there are signs saying ‘do not prop unless you are using a prop for a prop’…

    I just could not help myself, sorry…
