Door handle attachment - simple, right? Wrong


Postby potdot » Mon Aug 02, 2010 2:31 pm

I called my wife through, proud of my achievement, attaching a new door handle on our lounge door. She was impressed until she tried to open the door. With all her might she, and then I, pushed down to try and open the door. It wasn't budging, we were stuck! Just as we were about to scramble out of the window I tried the handle the other way. Indeed, I had put it on upside down and you had to life it up to get out! LOL. My wife found it so hilarious that she has kept it as a talking point, at the expense of my pride!

I just thought of the upside, this new door handle system will help keep the little ones from opening doors they shouldn't be... Turning a negative into a positive, I like it! :-)
