TFL Franchise Systems, LLC
Ugly Door Contest

Official Contest Rules

This July, The Flying Locksmiths are looking do their patriotic duty by finding the ugliest door in America that only a CFO looking to save a buck could love. We want to do a “before and after” remodel to show you that anything is possible in this great country of ours – including transforming the most beastly commercial door into a beauty that you can be proud for your employees, customers, neighbors, friends, and family alike to see and use. So send us a photo of the ugliest, gnarliest, worst-kept commercial “Ugly Door” that your company wishes it could hide! Any photo submitted must be a photo of an actual commercial door used by your company, which you have the right to authorize work to be done on, and the photo must be a true representation of your door (e.g., not digitally altered or otherwise modified in any way, shape, or form).] TFL defines a commercial door, as a hollow metal door that is used at a place of business and not comprised of wood. Common commercial doors are roughly 36” x 80” and any entries need to be comparable in size. This contest does not include large, oversized doors. In regards to door hardware, this contest will include the components necessary to operate the door and not ancillary pieces. Hardware that TFL would replace, if necessary includes, hinges, exit devices, closers, frames, sweeps, thresholds, locking hardware. This does not include access control or alarms.

NO PURCHASE IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
