Bullard, TX

""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)." "

"Very rarely do you work with the owner and inventor of a product in our business. William (Bill) Barna is truly the reason this company is successful! Our district is small and could be a blip on his radar, but he treated us like we were his only client. The product is amazingly easy to install and super effective. We looked at them all and the Bolo Stick was runaway the winner. The price point was very friendly for a small school budget and the company stands behind every product they sell. I won’t recommend any other product for door safety to my colleagues because the Bolo Stick is that good."

"Southwest Construction has just completed the installation of 70 Bolosticks in a local Jewish high school in Los Angeles. The product works well, and installation was easy and as described in your videos. Students and staff were instructed on implementing the Bolo stick, and were impressed with how easy it was to lock the doors. There is a renewed sense of security among all, and even the hired armed guards are impressed with the product and its use. Thank you for helping keep our precious students safe."

"I have a home with two sliding glass doors and there's nothing I hate more than having that big ugly stick in the door blocking it so no one can break in. So today I changed that I ordered these Bolo Stick Patio door safety pins. Took me literally 5 minutes to install them both, no more big ugly stick and now I have a clean look with a safety pin that's solid steel and stronger than the piece of wood ever was protecting my home! Best part it's made in the USA!"

Bolo Stick

Bolo Stick LLC was founded by William J. Barna, a 33-year police officer in the aftermath of repetitive critical incidents occurring within schools, churches, medical facilities, manufacturing plants, and public venues around the United States. As a veteran officer and certified Police Academy Instructor, he saw the need for an instantaneous solution to barricade interior doors from unwanted intruders. Thus, the Bolo Stick was created to be a solid steel barricade capable of withstanding forces in excess of 2 tons while maintaining affordability to cash-strapped school systems, churches, mosques, synagogues, and businesses. While Bolo Stick was initially developed with schools in mind, it is being utilized in churches, hospitals, daycares, and workplaces as companies increase efforts for workplace security in light of recent public shootings. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reports that 69% of the active-shooter incidents studied between 2000 - 2013 lasted less than 5 minutes. Bolo Stick was designed to serve as a barricade in the protection of human life against unwanted threats. The one-step activation allows for protection in seconds and the low attachment point on doors prevents unwanted room entry while saving lives. Bolo Stick is endorsed by NOCSSM, the National Organization of Church Security and Safety Management. Bolo Stick is a member of the Tennessee Sheriffs' Association (Member No. 973751)
