MUSCATINE, Iowa — A school safety device named “The Sleeve” was invented by Iowa teachers, and locks classroom doors keeping intruders out and kids safe.
The idea has gone viral.
It was created by a group in the Quad Cities. Since the story about the product aired earlier this week, the product’s popularity has skyrocketed.
Product creators say they didn’t expect this kind of response.
“The response from the nation is awesome, it’s shocking, its overwhelming, it’s all of the above. I couldn’t be happier,” says Daniel Nietzel, president of Fighting Chance Solutions.
He says they’ve gotten orders from across the country and locally and are working out details like selling gift certificates and allowing donations.
