It won't stop an elephant, but can pretend the closed doors
That is very very cool
I've seen something similar made out of a dinning fork, this looks like it would be stronger though.
I like that. I googled it and found directions for making one
but I do not have the tools required. Here is how to make the dining fork lock mentoned by earthman. Enough to discourage a random felon and easier for me to make.
I knew a guy in the college dorm thar called those a "cop stop block lock"
Wow.... These could be put in classrooms and "at risk" workplaces everywhere. Couple of minor design tweaks could make it evne stronger (but a little less portable, which isn't a concern if it were for shelter-in-place type use.)
Mauser, you always come up with such cool ideas! We're still drooling over your earlier belt loop carrier ... what I call the "Dogbone":
That was a great idea, too! It was fascinating to see how your original idea evolved and improved.
Here's the original February, 2013 thread, y'all: http://edcforums.com/threads/the-new-for-a-belt-loop.105478/
Thanks on the kind word.
Idea of the lock unfortunately not mine.
I changed a bend, I think so it will be more reliable.
I want to make more compact. In the size of a usual door key.
As happens there are ideas - there are no opportunities.
I carry a plastic version of this that I got from Amazon in my washbag for staying in hotels etc. it's surprisingly effective. If nothing else, it should ensure I'm woken by somebody getting into my room.
+1. Coupled with a door wedge.
This is a neat idea. Though I must admit... while you guys are looking to be more secure, I'm looking at each version and coming up with ways to defeat them. Part of my job requires fast emergency entry through doors which many times becomes forced entry as soon as I realize the door is locked. In an emergency situation this would prove to be one more item for me to keep in the back of my head and for that I must say, thank you! I have never encountered a device like these before but now If I don't see the telltale signs of drop bars, extra locks, barriers or any other common security additions, I may now know what I'm dealing with.
Nothing a good battering ram couldn't overcome.
I've never used a battering ram. But I'd sure as hell make quick work of it with an axe and halligan bar.
I carry one called Addalock in all my bags when I travel. Great sense of security. Got it on Amazon for like 35 bucks! Will at least keep house keeping out when they're not wanted or double booking of a room. Had that happen once. Can't seem to be able to post a pic.
Anything can be defeated. This is more of an unpleasant surprise slower downer.
You can't beat a 10 pound key
... here still option, stationary - though installation and removal will take no more than a minute.
