I have LOTS of reader photos that I haven’t had a chance to edit and post, so here’s the first batch! Thank you for sending them, and keep them coming! I’ll try to work faster in 2013!
When I survey a job for lockdown locks, I recommend the janitors closets have storeroom locks. We don’t want kids in there. Here is a good one, with a new storeroom lock. There is so much tape holding the latch back that the door can’t even close. There are chemicals on a high shelf, but thoughtfully, they put a ladder there so the kids can reach them. That shelf, is that an electric panel?
Neil Scully of New England Door Closer sent me these photos of a closer painted by Alice Carey of Indiana. Pretty!
Matt Wildman of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, saw these mega-stops…one way of providing an auxiliary stop in an exterior outswinging application (I would have tried an overhead stop or integral stop on the closer). I’m assuming he didn’t specify them. 😀
Kyle Learch of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies saw this closer “hanging around.”
