Last week I spent a couple of days in North Conway, New Hampshire, and I came back with some souvenir photos of the Doors Gone Wrong that were scattered around town. North Conway is a beautiful vacation destination and a fun place to visit, but I can find bad hardware in the most picturesque of locales. I was there with my friend who is an architect, so while she was admiring the beautiful Victorian train station and the quaint shops and inns, I was all, “STOP THE CAR I SEE UGLY HARDWARE!!”
And last but not least, this sign was on the door in our hotel room that led to our second-floor balcony. It seems very unlikely that anyone would “exit this way” when the only way to exit would be to jump over the railing or climb under the divider to our neighbor’s balcony (and then either jump over their railing or enter through their unlocked door). We didn’t visit our neighbor or jump off the balcony so our room remained secure.
