    One Word, “”Suicide””

    You could say

    I can save you 90% of the cost

    Here is a 10 cent door stop.

  3. Lach says:

    Outside of the typical bad idea concerns for these devices. What happens when that metal clip is broken and the thing falls and whacks a kid in the head?

  4. cda says:

    you could say:

    It is not UL Listed.

  5. Richard says:

    Always makes me laugh when I see someone who wants to secure a door with that much glass in and around it. I would have been in that room in less than 2.8 seconds!

  6. A says:

    Would the install be considered a renovation? I can see the AHJ coming in, immediately rejecting the barracade, then requiring the locks be updated to be ADA compliant. So not only would the school system be out the cash thrown down for those stupid devices they then would have to shell out even more money to upgrade the locks to do away with the knobs.

  7. Ed Berkel says:

    And it doesn’t comply with either the IFC or NFPA 101. Just another BAD idea.

  8. Chuck Park says:

    If the “intruder” was even a little motivated, he would have snapped that door in half diagonally.
    P.S. Another sore subject: That door had wired glass in it.

  9. Curtis Meskus says:

    can we produce a video ever showing compliant door locking systems that comply with the codes and get as much attention as the never ending bad ideas put forward?

  10. Peter Schifferli says:

    They hope to keep the cost under $200.00! The one lawful code-compliant retrofit barricade lock I am familiar with, Safebolt(tm) from Securitech can be had for $400.00 list.

    This came to mind, the children’s book.

    Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

    Death Trap!

  13. Kory Beck says:

    Substitute the image of an intruder on the outside with a teacher trying to get in and the person on the inside being an attacker with a victim now locked in the room with him. That is a more realistic (common) scenario. Very troubling.
