    The correct way to do it would be a longer chain fastened directly to the door.

    I’ve seen chains before, I’ve even seen lengths of electrical conduit with sash chain inside, but I have never seen a chain used in conjunction with a shelf support!

    Whoever wrote the spec should have done a better job of coordinating the finishes 🙂

    Did they thru-bolt the shelf bracket?

    We have all seen this problem in may forms, beside the internal/externals door mounted electric release closures hardware or tombstones which are a floor hazard most of the time what is the correct affordable answer.
