    Please provide a bigger hammer….I am in a hurry!

  4. Joel Niemi says:

    swing that little hammer hard to break the safety glazing AND don’t cut yourself on the edges!

    Prior to the lever lock, it may have had a knob lock with a glass jar over it. It seems unlikely that you would be instructed to break out that large window with that little hammer.
    There was one of those jars on a stairwell exit in an old residence building at the medical center I worked in.
    The other doors had the wind-up Best exit alarms with the breakable glass panels.

    Where’s the little (I mean huge) hammer on a chain.

  7. A.J. Vanhooser says:

    Hmmm….beyond the obvious issue…since it’s in a door, the glass is required to be safety glass of some sort. If it’s laminated safety glass, good luck getting through to the latchset.

  8. Jon Griswold says:

    Did they test at least once with the hammer to make sure it would break?

  9. David Barbaree says:

    This reminds me of the time that I was doing some demolition and tried to break a sheet of tempered glass with a sledgehammer. It’s not so easy. You have to hit it just right with the right amount of force.
    Good one, Lori! This made me laugh

    This is the obvious story of the the little hammer that could … Oh no wait thats the little train that could … I would imagine that the painter removed the fire alarm box on the wall in order to paint or prep the wall . perhaps there is an electric strike there we cannot see .ok too much thought my head hurts .lol

  11. Mary Gates says:

    Don’t get the floor dirty when you break that glass!

  12. David says:

    Ohhh … You can reverse the handing on a storeroom function lock? Who knew? I thought the lock had to be on the inside of the door.

    Well at least despite requiring a special tool, they provided it. (kidding)

    One action and no special knowledge?
