I have run out of words.  Is this the best we can do to secure our classrooms?  🙁

    The sad part is that the one who did this is most likely patting themselves on the back for such a clever solution they came up with.

    You’re right, there are no words for that!

    I’d be willing to bet the rent that this “device” was the brainchild of a teacher or administrator.
    Please, educators, stick to teaching our children and leave door hardware design to the professionals in that field.

    P.S. – Betcha that door loop isn’t even through-bolted 🙂

    The first lawsuit will put an end to all this nonsense

    This demonstrates the importance of educating facility managers/end users on available hardware options. More often than not the selling stops once the product gets specified.

    Would a stainless steel crossband in the door deter someone from fastening this sort of item?

  7. Joel Niemi says:

    betcha could get a sawzall with a long blade through that gap, and cut the turnbuckle

    I just wonder how secure that drywall is . I think the door frame would have been stronger… Such a sad state of affairs . When we cheap out to protect our kids .

    Yikes. The pity continues in that it is such an obvious weak solution too. It is all weakest links. (Pun intended as the designers should be laughed at.)
