These are binding rules that apply to all members and guests of i3 Detroit. They were formally adopted at a regular member meeting on: November 3rd, 2009.


Safety is the responsibility of every member and guest.

All members and guests are required to use appropriate personal protective equipment.

It is the the responsibility of every member and guest to understand the safe use of any tool or equipment before using it.

Members must not allow unsafe practices by any guest.



Any member may host up to ten guests in the space.

Two members may host an unlimited number of guests.

In all cases, the member(s) hosting a guest are responsible for:

  • Verifying that each guest has a signed waiver on file before they're allowed entry.
  • Signing the log with each guest
  • Making sure guests understand the guidelines under which we operate
  • Ultimately, cleaning up after guests if they fail to do it themselves


All members are responsible for maintaining the security of our access credentials (keycard/fob and PIN). If you suspect that your card has been copied or PIN has been disclosed, please see the secretary about replacing or changing it.

Keycards may be temporarily entrusted to a "family member" for limited purposes (such as picking up or dropping off items at the space). Such trustees are not considered members and should not use tools, host guests, etc. Sharing or loaning a key outside these limits is grounds for revocation thereof.

A member or guest who behaves inappropriately (including but not limited to violation of these rules or the bylaws) may be asked to leave by another member. In case of a dispute in the matter, any board member may mediate.


Private tools or equipment may not be used by any member or guest without the permission of the owner.

Private tools must be clearly labeled. Unlabeled tools or equipment may be assumed to be freely usable by any member or guest.

Don't remove anything, including tools, from the space without explicit permission from the owner.


It is the responsibility of the members to come to amicable agreements of disputes tools, space or other shop resources.

No sleeping / living in the space. (napping for a little is ok)

Be excellent to each other.
