How about some reader photos to ease you into the weekend? 😀

Jim Lenox of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies found a rescue hardware application I had never seen before.  Instead of a cased opening frame, the door is mounted on the stop.  Is this how they used to do a rescue hardware door in the good old days?


Jim also sent this screw hold-open. I have no words.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who notices hardware on TV and in movies.  Steve Poe of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies sent me this screen shot.  This facility is local so I may just have to go over and have a chat about that hasp…

Andy Olson of Northeastern Plate Glass Corp. sent me this photo which goes along with the theme of this recent post about surface bolts and panic hardware.

From Brendan Daley of Surveillance Specialties, a do-it-yourself dogging device for a fire door.  The scary thing is that when they pull the DIY-DD out, let the touchpad and latch project, and then stick the DIY-DD back through the holes (you know they do!), I’m pretty sure the door won’t open for egress unless you pull out the DIY-DD.  Scary.

And finally (for now…I have more!), I wasn’t sure what I was looking at in this photo sent in by Eyal Bedrik of Entry Systems Ltd.  The video cleared it up.
