The Bolo Stick solves one of the biggest problems facing the nation today—violence in schools and the workplace. It works off of a round-peg-round-hole philosophy, and it is free of electrical and mechanical components. The Bolo Stick lockdown device can be deployed under the most stressful of situations, and by anyone at any age. There is no specialized information or training needed, making this the simplest and most effective form of classroom barricade security devices, essential equipment for the L (lockdown) in ALICE training.
According to data from Shootingtracker.com, there have been 353 mass shootings in the United States in 2015 alone, killing 462 and injuring 1312. Schools are are a prime target for these violent incidents due to the large number of people in a small area combined with typically weak security. We owe it to ourselves and our children to increase school security and protect our schools from active classroom shooters.
