Derrick Riding sent me today’s Wordless Wednesday photo of a hold-open device on a fire door (note the painted label).  Aside from the fact that it’s not acceptable for use on a fire door assembly, this hold-open method is terrible for the door, frame, and hinges.  Is this an actual product made for this purpose, or was it designed for something else and just happens to “work” as a hold-open?

UPDATE:  Bill Dorner of Allegion found this product (or something very similar) on Amazon.  Two of the three doors shown in the Amazon listing are fire doors.  :\
