Highly Effective & Simple Utilize- Great Possible Crises Sit As Advertised-Use Minor Improvement!
by Beat a 'Bhèist (4 out of 5 stars)
April 26, 2019

This is a more than simple yet beyond effective system. Placed on outward opening door over door handle puts it roughly center of mass of the door and makes it nearly impossible to budge from the other side of the door even with locks and deadbolts unlocked and on hollow-core interior doors.

Reason for four stars, is the outer brackets should be made to slide or made wider to fit deeply recessed outward opening doors, such as with the Barracuda floor version available at Furthermore if the bar itself were made longer or telescoping and outer pads as well as lock positioning bracket loops- x 2, could slide would provide for more install options on various size doors. Otherwise, must be installed on a standard 36-inch door for device to work properly. Additionally, did not come with, or missed, directions for correct drill bit size to install hanging bracket that comes with device???

Conclusion: As per sales demo video, it is true that in crises situations- for people not used to such, and even those used to them- fine motor skills and cognitive abilities do degrade significantly, and this device is beyond simple to install on a door in mere seconds, as advertised and especially if one were to practice lock-down drills routinely!

Does not fit all doors
by Will (3 out of 5 stars)
April 4, 2019

This product as delivered looks like it should work; however, I was not able to get the part that latches over the door handle to reach far enough. The part that reaches from the bar to the door handle was not long enough to actually reach the door handle. The door handle is about 6.5 inches from the door frame, which is too long for the latch part to reach. I reached out to Amazon, and they sent me a number to contact Barracuda, but Barracuda says they do not support this product on Amazon.

This product has potential to work, but if your door handle is much farther than 4 inches from the frame, I don't recommend the product as I haven't received the support needed to get a different part.

Doesn't fit any of our classroom doors
by Ashley W. (1 out of 5 stars)
June 28, 2019

I bought this for my classroom at my students' requests and had the same issue, including the manufacturer disregarding my attempt to get help. I even had it welded to extend it, because I had already spent so much on it, but it still didn't work. When I called for advice with adapting it, the manufacturer basically said tough luck. I asked it they would consider making different sizes of the latching mechanism and they blew off my feedback. I thought with all of the school incidents recently, they would be a little less blaze about helping a teacher who paid out of pocket to protect her students.

My husband just passed away so I'm still getting used to being alone. This gives me a feeling of security and allows me to sleep at night.
