Protecting Students One Door at a Time

DESIGNED to Protect CHILDREN - the #1 Preferred Temporary Barricade Device

BullyProof Design


TeacherLock(R) was designed from the start to keep control of the room in the hands of the teacher.  While active shooter emergencies are rare and dangerous, a bully or worse who controls the door is equally as dangerous.  

The Best Fire-Safe Choice: UL-10C Tested, Passed, and comes with a Breaching Key for First Responders

The Best Fire-Safe Choice: UL-10C Tested, Passed, and comes with a Breaching Key for First Responder

Our proprietary key is designed so that first responders can quickly open the door from the outside.  Our key fits into a Knox Box and is easy and fast.   TeacherLock is also UL-10C Tested / UL10-C Passed! 

ADA Compliant


TeacherLock can be mounted at any height on the door, but to be ADA compliant, it must be between 34 and 48 inches from the floor.  It can be opened without pinching, twisting or grasping.

Works Under Extreme Stress


When your heart rate increases, you lose fine motor skills.  The simple job of finding, orienting, and locking using a key becomes impossible under stress.   The TeacherLock Activator is tactile in design and is naturally oriented in the correctly clocked position whether left or right handed.  When seconds count, we are faster than any key. 

Instinctive Egress


TeacherLock is designed as a temporary barricade for use in lockdown emergencies.  The Teacherlock egress lever is located directly above the door handle making it instinctive and fast to exit. No prior knowledge or training is necessary to exit the room in an emergency.  Teacherlock can be configured for a single operation to unlatch/unlock a door, using our strike block, making  it a single linear motion to push our egress button and exit the room.  At night, or when the room is unoccupied, the door is closed and latched for fire safety.

Affordable and Installs in Six Minutes


TeacherLock is built from aircraft aluminum and stainless steel, and is made in the USA.  Our device is less than the cost of replacing a door lock set.  Using a simple drill, screwdriver, and our template, anyone can install our device quickly.  Please check your local building ordinances.  Some jurisdictions may require that your door be inspected.  


We are excited to announce our newest option for TeacherLock! 

WHY Keyed Locksets Don't work in an Active Shooter Emergency!

 When the shooting starts, the concussive and deafening sound of gunfire rattles doors, breaks windows, and shakes dust from the ceiling. Smoke alarms are triggered, and the chaos will disable a teacher's ability to think and act.  A teacher's fine motor skills will disappear.  Teachers are simply not trained for combat situations. Keyed Locksets are touted by door companies as the only safe choice, but keys just don't work. TeacherLock is tactically designed for instant deployment. 


Our Proprietary TeacherLock Activator

Fast under stress

Normal keys don't work in an active shooter incident.   When an active shooter is in the hall and the gunfire is so loud that the concussive and deafening effect rattles windows and doors and shakes dust from the ceiling, a teacher will lose all fine motor skills.   Tasks which seem simple will be nearly impossible.   As a person's heart rate increases, it becomes more difficult to perform simple operations such as finding a key, inserting it into a keyhole, and securing a door.   

Our tactical design uses simple biomechanics to orient the activator into the correct position to lock a door.  Whether you are left or right handed, your thumb and index fingers will find "Home" on our key which makes it simple, fast, and easy.  Muscle memory is the term used by law enforcement to train and act without having to think under stress.  Our activator works without thinking and will lock a door in 3 seconds or less!
