FF: The New Mag-Locks

Category: Fixed-it Friday,Locks & Keys,VideosLori @ 12:55 am Comments (8)

I know…these would not be code-compliant on the egress side of a door in the means of egress, but you have to admit they’re cool. Thanks to Leo Lebovits of M&D Door & Hardware for sending me the links to these Fixed-it Friday videos!

    I’d like to see how well that will work when the door gets a little warped, or swollen from moisture.

  3. Sheldon says:

    Clever! But why not use the time-honored – and unknown – way to hide the key – leave the key above the door?

  4. Daniel Poehler says:

    The “special knowledge” is the security part of the lock. This is probably a home work shop were the user is the home owner. It’s still a code violation no matter how attractive.

    We must get them in the shops for Christmas……

    For who wonder and have questions, check out this guy’s Instagram, he basically build everything himself “Including the door”, I think this door goes to his shop.
