School Lockdown

Lockdown and protect students and staff with the LockOut Company SmartBoot System

Powerful Protection For Your School

We started by creating The Boot™ door barricade and grew into a school lockdown safety and systems provider, dedicated to stopping the tragic loss of the lives of our students and teachers to school shootings. While we’ve grown to include lockdown systems for many other facility types, protecting our students and those who educate them is still a responsibility we take very seriously. We hope that someday all violence in schools comes to an end. Until then, we’ll continue providing lockdown and lockout systems designed to make our schools safer for everyone.

School Statistics

Below are the statistics related to lockdowns and shootings on school campuses nationwide in 2018.

How the lockOut System Works

The LockOut SmartBoot System combines our physical door barricade, The Boot™ and our patented Smart System as well as our Highly Reflective Rapid Response Placards and Ballistics Shields to create a comprehensive school lockdown and security system. With these components fully integrated, the SmartBoot System has the ability to:


  • Lockdown a room inside your school using The Boot™ door barricade device
  • Indicate the lockdown level within your school as either a full lockdown or soft lockdown based on the color of the LockOut SmartLights throughout the school
  • Instantly alert police dispatch that a lockdown has occurred through the LockOut mobile application, which is tied directly to the police dispatch application
  • Help building occupants and first-responders quickly identify rooms using the Highly Reflective Rapid Response Room Placards
  • Protect windows from attempted entry with the LockOut Ballistics Shields deployed on all windows and glass doors

Comprehensive Building Security

The LockOut SmartBoot system is comprehensive, effective, and easy to activate if a school lockdown occurs. View the video below to see the LockOut SmartBoot System in action.
