Contact your Loved One’s school for approval to sponsor a classroom door with a $125 Positive Lock TH(ELD) Door Lock that meets code requirements. There are many scary lockdown devices being pushed at schools today. Ensure your Loved One’s school is installing a device that will safely lock and unlock the classroom door.

Locking a classroom door should not be more dangerous than the emergency lockdown situation itself. 

Emergency lock down of a classroom during an emergency situation is an essential need due to recent school shootings. Positive Lock, Inc. introduces the TH(ELD) Security Door Lock to help with your emergency security needs. The TH(ELD) Security Door Lock is surface mounted, locks both sides of the door, meets all National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2018 requirements (see blue box), and is extremely easy to operate. We are confident any child would be able to lock or unlock this secondary door lock if an emergency arose.
