It's a metal sleeve that slides over the closer bar of a door outfitted with some, enabling you to prevent a door you couldn't otherwise lock from opening.

Keep in mind that the side of the door that has a closing arm is not the side that the door opens toward, but rather the side that the door opens away from, so in those cases a barricade would not work.

well, that seems much more useful than the bullet-proof blanket things that look like gym pads....

In my opinion, the best part is, a teacher (or other person working for a facility not providing adequate security) can just keep one at his or her desk, and deploy it when necessary.  It's too awkward to be a weapon.  So you don't have to wait on a bureaucracy to act.

I hope my kid gets out before his teacher decides to use that.

Yes, that's so much better than a simple wooden wedge doorstop, or even one of the plastic ones.

Or a security bar.

I realize that we want to shelter the children from seeing such things, but a door stop, security bar or even one of those medieval-looking security jambs would work much better.

Hell, why not just make the doors to the classrooms more like safe doors with multiple steel locking bolts?

Of course, if we continue to endanger our children by creating a Total Victim Zone. . .

School doors open out, so you need something to keep the door from being pulled open. Even a simple slide deadbolt would slow down most school attackers

Ta-daa.  Problem solved so easily.  Ours are nowhere near an indoctrination center.  We figure it's just a matter of time before they start bussing children to an "undisclosed, safe location".  It's pretty simple for them to "not release the location", as it is "for the children's safety".  You'll be allowed to pick them up after you "are cleared through their procedures".

We're not willing to allow our children to be kidnapped AND brainwashed, so we'll just handle their education ourselves.  Additionally, we've found baby-sitting to be quite affordable, so there's really no need to have such a high property tax levied against us.  As that's all they really do nowadays, we'll find our own qualified baby-sitter that doesn't need a pension and half the year off paid.

Just my opinion.
