This closer repair obviously qualifies as a Fixed-it Friday photo, but it also left me Wordless. Thanks to Jim Lenox of Allegion.
Wow, that is cool!
Wish I had thought of this repair method when I was in the field 🙂
I wonder if it relates to the physics poster above the door…
I don’t think rubber bands are allowed on fire rated assemblies.
I think this has been rigged to advertise the “physics contest” shown in the poster above the door!
Nice wire glass
What you can’t see is the hole in the wall punched by the arm elbow. There is no way the wall isn’t damaged. The best you could do with the rubber bands is to make enough angle that the arm scrapes down the wall each cycle of the door. To still be using hold open arms is another subject all together. No better than a wooden wedge under the door. The top hinge is probably loose due to the hold open stress. The casing is split showing it.
All kinds of wrong here, including one of Lori’s favorites, wired glass.
