Here are some more reader photos that have recently hit my (e)mailbox…

To continue our cruise ship theme, these photos were taken by Bill Negron of Lotspeich.  This is an automatic operator on a cruise ship that opens the door of an accessible bathroom stall.  The operator is concealed in the ceiling, and the arm is attached to the stainless steel structure projecting above the door.

It took me a while to figure this one out…the photo was taken at the Holy Grail Pub by James Stokes of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies.  I spent a few minutes trying to figure out whether the two closers were connected in some way, and then confirmed with James that the closer body mounted on the frame was just a “leftover” and no longer had an arm:
