Do you see what I see?  THIS is why temporary locking devices should not be approved for doors serving a means of egress.  They often become permanent locking devices!  And I have heard some proponents of temporary locking devices say that fire marshals do not have the authority to have them removed.  Does that apply to chains and padlocks too?  In my opinion, fire code officials should be able to address anything that is restricting egress.

What do you think?
