From Vent, Enter, Search, a blog for firefighters about hazards and unusual situations encountered on the job. Much of what's documented is epic kludge that may also put firefighters in danger when trying to enter or exit a building.

The only issue with this "lock" is that it's less of a security mechanism and more of a test of strength between you and the person coming in. If a 300-pound linebacker gives the door just one good yank, he'll probably send you flying from the toilet seat with who-knows-what strewn all over the floor.
