Funky Hold Open

Human Ingenuity at its best

We like to take pictures of hardware "in the wild" for the blog, and this application was just too good to pass by.

Seen here is a unique solution to a "hold open" for a door.  Take a close look - it's a toilet plunger!  It's suction cup abilities would certainly hold open a door.  We even joked that it may be appropriate in fire-rated applications as it would melt and allow positive latching in case of a fire.  

Of course, we can't condone this sort of hardware installation, but we can certainly share it for entertainment purposes.
