Door Barricade Reviews

The Bolo Stick Door security device has been endorsed by School Officials, Policed Officers, Firefighters, Church Leaders, and Security Experts because is a strong, simple, safe, and affordable. 

The simple one-step round hole/round peg philosophy eliminates the need for fine motor skills under stress. Community leaders have selected our door barricade device because it does not require any special knowledge to operate and has universal mounting for inward or outward swinging doors. As one of the best school, church or office lockdown devices on the market, our mission is to give everyone a one-step method to save lives.

We are proud of the endorsement we have received. See more Bolo Stick security videos.

Dusty McGee - Assistant Superintendent, Liberty ISD

""In a smaller school district built over years of changing building codes, Bolo Stick was the product we selected which met all of our criteria to function with the least possible amount of human or mechanical error, while consistently and uniformly securing doors opening in both directions. Using Bolo Stick uniformly throughout the district provided the opportunity to streamline training for regular and substitute staff and comply with newly enacted legislation. Our staff has reported feeling empowered and more confident in the knowledge that once Bolo Stick is deployed, no threat can get into their classroom(s)." "
