    Default Chocking Doors with Nails

    Hey All,

    I am going over the many ways to keep a door open either with initial line advancement or search and rescue. But I came across someone who used a nail to keep a door open. Can someone elaborate this technique. It was very interesting

    Default nails

    Get a box of 3" fluted masonry nails. Shove a bunch into your pocket or in your lid. Place the nail between the door and the jamb, point into the door. "SET the nail by pulling the door closed. It will drive the nail in AND it wont drop out if the door is opened wider!!
    this works great on metal on metal doors
    stay safe

    Thumbs up Nails'

    Nails are by far an advantage for keepin doors and windows open! Nice thing bout em is if there in your lid and you can sneek a wedge in your turn-outs, the older guys wont point ya out right away in the middle of the night for false alarm/sprinkler calls and you can go back to bed nice and warm'
