    That is a screwed up application.

  2. lach says:

    Does it still work?

  3. RIck Nemec says:

    That is putting the screws to it.

  4. Lenny Scorpiniti says:

    Looks like the “Bride of Frankenstein” of door hardware!!!!!!

  5. Marcus Muirhead says:

    Why would anyone go to so much trouble with this work-around when it would’ve been so much easier to do it the right way?

  6. david says:

    Not a good application for a pull door

  7. Louise says:

    at least they matched the finish

  8. Eric says:

    Someone got paid by the hour to do that. 🙁

  9. Eric T. says:

    They could have at least filled the two screw holes with screws.

    On a separate note: Why the change from math problems to “Captcha Codes”? Was the math too difficult for some? 🙂

      Apparently sometimes people would put in the right answer to the math question and it still wouldn’t publish the comment, so I switched.

  10. Carol W says:

    Well ….. the screws are matching.

  11. Leonard Bankester says:

    Is that a Levi’s latch (or a government project!) ?

  12. Thierry Lapointe says:

    That guy, doesn’t screw around

  13. Bryan McKeehan says:

    Serious overkill by a non-hardware person.

  14. Jeff Tock says:

    Someone got a new Dewalt screw gun for Christmas!!

  15. Dan Poehler says:

    Definitely a “Wordless Wednesday” example!

  16. Ryan Johnson says:

    Well, at least they used nice Brass screws to match the hardware.
