If not still in use at night. Lori February 8, 2017 at 9:13 am - Reply I’m guessing it’s still in use and is leaning up against the wall next to the door! – Lori Jack Ostergaard February 8, 2017 at 2:48 pm - Reply And the sans-thumbturn dead bolt. Can that be locked on the exterior -cause it can’t be unlocked from the interior. And I don’t recognize the dot below that. Eric February 8, 2017 at 3:38 pm - Reply OK, I must be missing something. I can’t figure out how that thing is supposed to work. Lori February 9, 2017 at 10:19 am - Reply I think Sheldon has a good theory…check out his comment. – Lori Pete Schifferli February 8, 2017 at 4:50 pm - Reply Looks like a home made version of Exit Security’s “hook-on series”, see link http://www.exitsecurity.com/ Pete Schifferli Lori February 9, 2017 at 10:18 am - Reply I think you’re right! – Lori Eric February 8, 2017 at 5:47 pm - Reply Is the other bar (the one leaning against the wall) longer and made to fit on top of the door mounted bar? I’m guessing it is angled in such a way to wedge between the inside rabbets and behind the stop. It looks like the two long pins hold it in place at night??? Sheldon February 8, 2017 at 6:11 pm - Reply The long bolts sticking down through the bar on the door are removed. The bar leaning against the wall is placed on top of the bar on the door, extending to the left to engage the stop. The bolts are dropped through both bars, securing the upper bar in place. Voila! The exit device is defeated. Lori February 9, 2017 at 10:17 am - Reply That’s what I thought! – Lori Eric Rieckers February 9, 2017 at 10:37 am - Reply But if the bar on the wall is placed on top of the one attached to the door, how does it engage the stop? The bar on the door is between the stops. If you place the other one on top, it would have to fit between the stops as well. It somehow must be offset to engage the stop(s). We may have a first here: the pic requires a follow-up visit with the owner demonstrating how this works. Lori February 9, 2017 at 10:50 am - Reply Judging from the marks on the frame, I think the second bar goes against the face of the frame and attaches to the bar on the door. – Lori Cda February 9, 2017 at 11:07 am - Reply https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/spg/show_picture.pl?l=english&rais=1&oiu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gaterslocksmith.com%2Fblog%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F11%2FCobra-drill-open-job-023.jpg&sp=dc9cf2a116d5ddee39411874bc4eebf0 Found this interesting picture while looking for an example:: https://ixquick-proxy.com/do/spg/show_picture.pl?l=english&rais=1&oiu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gaterslocksmith.com%2Fblog%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F11%2FCobra-drill-open-job-022.jpg&sp=ca54ae0035569774997e96b425bdfb0a Rich February 9, 2017 at 5:47 pm - Reply If you enlarge the picture you will see the bar on the door is mounted on standoffs that move it out clear of the frame allowing the longer bar to mount on top.
