Share with your family and friends…

I admit, most of my posts on iDigHardware may not be extremely interesting to the general public.  The technical articles are important information for those of us involved in specifying, supplying, and/or installing door openings, but my teenager used some of them to practice for the reading section of the SAT exam.  😐  The photos that we find hilarious or horrific usually elicit a confused response from “regular people,” and the code reference guide is not on the NYTBS list (yet).

This post is an exception, and I hope you will share it with the people you care about.  These two videos hit my inbox recently, and they WILL save lives.  First, I have written about UL’s Close Before You Doze campaign before, but I LOVE this new video:

Second, I have also written about the dangers of double-cylinder deadbolts in residential homes. I hope this news story makes people think twice about the safety concerns associated with this security practice:

    I have been talking about the campaign for awhile now in my Fire door classes. This video will be a great addition! Thanks, Lori!

    Lori – Could you remind me about that residential smoke detector closer that you had posted a while ago? I think that would be a good product for people that like to sleep with their doors open. As the one mom in the video stated she kept her door open to hear her kids at night. What are your thoughts? Thank you!

      I said the same thing! Even when everyone knows the benefits of a closed bedroom door, there are people who won’t sleep with their doors closed (just like we all know we’re supposed to floss regularly). Here’s the blog post about LifeDoor: https://idighardware.com/2018/06/lifedoor/. There’s more info on their website regarding their progress toward bringing it to market. I’m rooting for them!
