Security Door Wedge
Auto-closing, auto-locking security doors once found only in some industrial buildings and hospitals, now are everywhere. And how many times have you really needed to keep one open — and couldn’t? One veteran patrol sergeant got tired of trying to wedge them open with folded matchbooks, ballpoint pens and garbage cans that skittered away, and Notable Concepts developed CHOCK-IT. This oddly shaped 1-ounce piece of tough, medium-hard rubber is designed to slip over a security door’s hinges or hang in its strike-plate, or wedge under the bottom edge of the door, and it works great! It also works fine on regular interior and exterior doors.
He designed it to be carried easily in a pocket. It’s 2x4x.5″, so it’s an easy fit. If you work in an urban, built-up area, carrying one on you makes good sense. If not, keep a set handy in your cruiser. A 2-pack lists for $12.
