Remember the old video of the various types of exit devices being run over by a fire truck?  It’s a classic, and I still get the urge to watch it every so often…“I am examining the [flattened] device.  It is not working.”  You could make the case that a panic device doesn’t need to withstand the weight of a fire truck, but I’ve seen some herds of kids run out of school at the end of the day that are almost as tough.

I recently saw a video of a tank running over a Von Duprin 99 device, leaving it fully functional afterward.  I have been dying to share it with you and it is now available!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: Apparently it’s not a tank…it’s allegedly an M113 Armored Personnel Carrier. Still heavy!

And here’s the original Ultimate Test in case you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again for old time’s sake.
