Hydra-Lock Protecting schools during Active Shooter Scenarios
With incidents of school shootings on the rise, parents, politicians and school administrators alike are left asking themselves what they can do to protect the children while at school. Is it possible to stop random acts of violence such as the Columbine shootings? What if you could devise a way to quickly barricade the students into the safety of a classroom away from danger. Well now you can.
Introducing the Hydra-Lock. The Hydra-Lock will restrict the access of an assailant into a classroom by holding the arms of a hydraulic door return together. The Hydra-Lock will provide the vital extra moments needed for school staff to create interior barricades to protect their students. Additionally, it provides the extra time needed for law enforcement to respond and arrive on scene and neutralize the threat during these types of critical incidents.
The Hydra-Lock was designed by a Police Officer who is a SWAT Team Leader with a major metropolitan Sheriff's Office in California. The Hydra-Lock is the result of his efforts to keep his own children safe while they are at school.

We liked the idea so much we immediately purchased units for our loved ones that work in school settings. They can now secure their room, forcing attackers to go look for easier prey elsewhere. The word got out and now other teachers are purchasing them with their own money due to school funding issues here in California.
They are also useful for Maintenance and Custodial staff members who need to secure rooms while working inside. We have even heard of a Night Watchman who secures his rear doors with a Hydra-Lock to prevent employees with keys from sneaking in the back door.
Hydra-Lock is used by a local SWAT team to secure doors behind the team as they move through clearing buildings.
We carry one while traveling to secure our hotel room door. No more door door being opened by Housekeeping while you are in the shower.
