Today’s Fixed-it Friday photos, taken in an elementary school auditorium, were sent in by Michael Festa of Islandwide Locksmith. If you’re not sure what you’re looking at, it’s fire exit hardware (which is never equipped with mechanical dogging), that has been modified with a pin to hold the latch retracted. This means that if a fire occurs, the door will not be latched as required by code, and could allow the fire to spread. I’m kind of curious about what’s under the push plate. Any guesses?
