While I was at the BHMA meeting this week, my dinner companions pulled out their phones to compare photos of bad hardware and code problems (yes, this is the fun stuff we do at these meetings).  Tim Weller of Allegion had the Fixed-it Friday photos below – of fire exit hardware which of course has no mechanical dogging, and the maintenance department’s solution.  Even though the tape would likely melt away during the fire and allow the device to latch, it’s still not code-compliant.

If you have photos held captive in your phone, set them free and send them to me!
