A STEP1 is a durable lockdown safety product that affixes to the interior of a classroom door, just above the door handle or door locking mechanism. This safety device keeps the door slightly ajar while allowing the door's lock mechanism to be engaged.
In a lockdown situation, by sliding the Step1 Device into the closed position you can quickly engage your door's locking mechanism and secure your room from intruders or attack. (When the entire Step1 Device is in the closed position, it is entirely red.)


During a lockdown situation, securing classrooms is a priority. With the Step1 Device, teachers and staff can confidently secure doors more quickly and much faster than any other locking method. The Step1 Device helps schools keep students safe by standardizing lockdown procedures and reduce reaction time. Replacing door locks can be expensive; using the Step1 Devices is a cost-effective solution for lockdown security.
