Life-Saving Locks

The device is designed to solve the problem which victims were tripped by the stuck door. For the purpose of solve this problem,we made some improvement on the door lock construction,putting the earthquake sensor which can detect the earthquake in tie inner space,the door lock will be unlocked automatically as the same time when the sensor triggered. After that,the airbag inside the device will react and eject from a hole and push away the door to let it keep opening. This motion can eliminate the ratio of death caused by stuck door.

And it also have whistle and torch function,which you can illuminate and make rescuers find your position.
