Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Hey there guys,
I'm looking into different ways to put together a training prop for Through the Lock Training. Something that we can use and abuse. I have several door locks and door knobs to use. Does anyone have, or have ever seen a usable prop like this??

We actually built one in our training facility for forced entry training; Went to the local building supplier and they donated a Door Frame and door for us. and we built a frame to stabilize it.
Great, thanks Mike. I am tossing around a few different ideas on building one. I may go down to the local suppliers today and inquire about that. Thanks again Mike.
