Ian Greene August 12, 2016 at 12:05 pm - Reply Ha ha……….. classic. lach August 12, 2016 at 10:27 am - Reply At least they didn’t make any modifications to the panic itself. Ryan Pfeiffer August 12, 2016 at 12:17 pm - Reply The sad/funny part is that box is probably sitting right over the hex dog and they aren’t aware of what it does. Michael Pedersen August 12, 2016 at 1:59 pm - Reply Did they lose their hex key? Or does this device not have a dogging feature? Glenn Younger August 12, 2016 at 2:05 pm - Reply This reminds me why, when we are not in a fire door situation and we are replacing exit devices, We almost always add dogging. Far better tho have it an not need it, than to need it, and not have it. Mike Elia August 12, 2016 at 3:04 pm - Reply I don’t see how this would this be a ‘code violation’. Security, yes. Code? Maybe or maybe not. Lori August 14, 2016 at 11:00 pm - Reply Hi Mike – You are correct – as long as this is not a fire door, it is not a code problem. Just a creative solution. – Lori Alan Itzkowitz August 12, 2016 at 3:11 pm - Reply In response to Ryan’s comment, similar to putting a door stop to hold open a door that has an automatic operator on it at a religious facility. I had to take the building administrator and facility manager and show them there is a button that will hold the door open for you without the risk of burning out the operator’s motor. DAVID FEDERICO August 12, 2016 at 6:06 pm - Reply True they say necessity is the mother of invention… However I think the construction of the hold open device cost more than the device it self …if you add in the cost of the employee who made it material and shop time ..lol still inventive .. Pete Schifferli August 12, 2016 at 9:25 pm - Reply Maybe they found out that VD #227 5/32″ hex dog keys list for a whopping $5.90 ea! Joel Niemi August 14, 2016 at 11:05 am - Reply 1. Screws too long. 2. Finish on metal parts doesn’t match finish of exit device. Other than that ….
