Locks just keep the honest people honest

Safety comes in many shapes and sizes and is directly proportionate to an individual’s level of understanding. We are living in a world where the levels of violence increase daily and critical incidents spread through schools, churches, daycares, business locations, and even our own homes like fires through the forest. Still, many do not comprehend the inferior safeguards they have chosen to ease their minds and quell their fears.

According to the FBI, the United States has seen 333 Active Shooter incidents between 2000 – 2019 resulting in 2,851 casualties. Business locations and schools had the highest frequency of incidents. Typically, these two locations were thought of as safe spaces to visit and conduct our activities, after all, they have doors with locks on them to keep the bad guys out. Wrong.

The typical use and purpose of the standard door lock being utilized in most schools and business locations are to establish privacy or provide a first line of defense. I reflect back to my childhood and recall my father’s voice saying “Locks just keep the honest people honest”. Indeed. The typical door locks in place do nothing more than create a baseline for the law-abiding individuals to adhere to and are merely an inconvenience to a violent, focused attacker. Perhaps, this is why soft-target locations like businesses and schools serve as hosts for the vast quantity of casualties being witnessed with increased frequency. There is a need for a layered approach to safety.

Introduce the Bolo Stick door barricade. An American-made device specifically designed to prevent unwanted room entry in one simple step. Manufactured from 1045 cold-rolled steel and capable of resisting more than 4,200 pounds of force it can be deployed in seconds without special knowledge or training.

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)
