what are the laws in ohio regarding the use of "foot locks"

This answer was rated:

what are the laws in ohio regarding the use of "foot bolts" in interior school classrooms?


Thelawman2 :

What are you referring to when saying foot bolt? Do you mean something bolting the children's feet to the floor??

Customer:

lawyer humor? a foot bolt is a "dead bolt" that attaches at the bottom of a door. the bolt slides into a hole in the floor locking out intruders. before sandy hook i believe they were not legal in ohio, but perhaps that has changed.

Thelawman2 :

I am not finding anything in the Ohio statutes regarding "foot bolts." The only statute I can find regarding locked doors in a school is RC 3737.73 which provides in pertinent part: In the case of schools, no principal or person in charge of a school shall willfully neglect to keep the doors and exits of such building unlocked during school hours.

Customer:

probably a fire code. thanks.

Thelawman2 :

Do you have any other questions? If not, please provide positive feedback

Customer:

this is a one time charge correct? not a membership?

Thelawman2 :

I believe that is correct. You have any questions about the charges, you would need to contact customer service. I am not 100% on how the charge works but they are more than willing to work with you.
