    Default Chocks and variations

    "Fire Engineering just did an article with a different type of wooden chock, pretty standard dimensions, but had a notch about half way back for laying directly over the hinge. I haven't had the inclination to cut any yet, im leaning more towards something like this:"

    I used to carry in a pocket a couple of 1-1/2" pieces of angle iron. They worked well as a makehsift chock (if I had already used the wooden ones I have) in metal frame doorways. being angle iron, they can be placed right in the track of the jamb, on the floor. While the door doesn't stay open at a rigid 90 degree angle, it is open enough to pass through and the angle iron doesn't get kicked out of place.

    They also work well in carpeted offices, turned with the angle up and wedged just under the door.

    Default Regarding Personal Rope

    For those of you who carry your own personal rope (bail out rope, escape rope), how many of you carry it freely (not enclosed in a bag or similar container) in your coat pockets?

    Do you regularly inspect your rope?
    If so, what is your own set of replacement criteria, if you have such?

    bcarey,
    I keep it in a large ziplock bag. The fig 8 and and carabineer out side the bag and a Fig 8 Stopper at the Dead end. If i use it I inspect it. after any working fire I inspect it. Just like any other Lifesafety Rope is how I would take care of the bailout out rope.
