Believe in the Sleeve

The Sleeve started it all at FCS. Invented by teachers for teachers, the Sleeve easily slides over the arms of door closers to safely lock a door from the inside.

“Hopefully, we’ll never have to use them. Hopefully, we’ll just have to dust them every once in a while and they’ll be on the wall. But, in case we need them, that’s why they’re there. We’re just trying to buy some time.”

President, Muscatine Community College

“As we have started to see a rise in violent crimes over the past few years I felt the need to find a better way to secure my classroom in the case of a violent intruder situation.  After exploring several options that failed, I turned to Fighting Chance Solutions. Their customer service was extraordinary.  They were very kind and more than willing to help.  I could tell that they truly wanted to make sure that my students and I were safe and secure in our classroom.  They were proactive in contacting me to make sure the product worked and that I was pleased with my purchase.”

“The PTO waited for the teacher, Daniel Nietzel, to get the patent and to get his product on the market. We actually saw these about a year ago and it’s really great that a teacher came up with this idea. These are easy to install.”
