WW: Exit Bolt

My husband: “Why are you sniffling?”

Me:  “It’s this Wordless Wednesday photo of panic hardware bolted to the jamb on the second means of egress from a classroom.”

My husband: “Do other people cry on Wednesdays or is it just you?”

Thank you to Chris Clark of Allegion for making me cry – again.

    but you can release it with one operation, consisting of multiple spins of a ratcheting socket wrench …

    I wonder what the shear value of the bolt is. And not all of us cry, some just walk away muttering while shaking our heads.

    Is this the hinge side, or did Von Duprin make a mortise model of the 66

    Yes but there is supposed to be a 3/8″ box end wrench on a rope for the key, somebody missed that one.
