I saw this door as I was walking down the street an hour ago. It’s your run-of-the-mill trash-can hold-open, with an added security layer consisting of a stack of giant bottles of water (we call them garrafones) inside. What I can’t figure out is why anyone would want/need to hold this door open. Nobody’s going in or out with los garrafones in the way. Yet another Fixed-it Friday mystery.
Update: I went back and took a photo from the inside (below). The door opening is completely covered by the stacks of bottles. If the reason for the propped door is ventilation, I really can’t imagine how much ventilation they’re getting but I guess it’s better than nothing. Although the stores here tend to be very security-conscious…the bottles must provide an acceptable level of security.
If yesterday’s post about UL 294 scared you, take some deep breaths and give it a go. It’s important information if you are involved in specifying or supplying electrified hardware. If you don’t know when/where the UL 294 listings are required you could inadvertently provide products that do not carry the necessary listing, and nobody wants to have to fix that mistake.
