You know what amazes me about this Fixed-it Friday photo?  It’s not the fact that someone used screws to dog the latch on this fire door in the stairwell of an apartment building.  It’s that in the last 10 years, the number of people who actually notice these problems (and often do something to resolve them) has increased significantly.  The photo came from Joe Hendry of the ALICE Training Institute, who was previously a university police lieutenant.  I wonder how often Joe looked at hardware on fire doors 10 years ago.  🙂
