In a recent announcement Inventhelp shared that the invention company has developed a product to help protect against active shooters from accessing an area.
“I’m a retired police chief and I thought there should be a quick and easy way to secure doors in a school during an active shooter situation,” said the inventor, from Moorcraft, Wy., “so I invented the LOCKED-IN. My design eliminates the time and need to locate barricade materials.”
The patent-pending invention provides a new security product to protect against active shooters. In doing so, it prevents a shooter from accessing the room or area. As a result, it increases safety and security and it can be adapted for use on most doors. The invention features an adaptable design that is easy to employ so it is ideal for schools, offices and other buildings.
The original design was submitted to the National sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
