Safe-Latch – How It Works

How it works

Simply place Safe-Latch between the door and frame – strong magnets and a lanyard hold the Safe-Latch securely in position – and close and lock the door. The product is designed to work with your existing classroom door hardware.

When in place, the Safe-Latch covers the strike plate, preventing the latch from entering the strike plate and allowing the door to be opened and closed freely by students and teachers entering and exiting the room. Classroom doors can be kept in this locked-but-accessible condition at all times. (As shown in image A. Safe-Latch Not Secured)

In a lockdown scenario, a student or teacher can quickly remove the Safe-Latch, allowing the latch to engage the strike plate and secure the already-locked door. Safe-Latch always allows for one motion egress, and the door can be unlocked by educators or emergency professionals by using the key, complying with fire codes.  (As shown in image B. Safe-Latch Secured)
