I received this photo from Mike Kugel of Allegion, who spotted this Fixed-it Friday modification in an airport(!).  In my experience, this is what happens when either:

  • Panic hardware is installed with the wrong function for the use of the opening
  • Fire exit hardware is installed without a means to hold the latch retracted

Where have you seen this type of “fix”?  What was the cause and what would have been a better solution (that didn’t involve tape and cardboard)?
