I should look at those pages myself before posting, but I still wanted
to say that a properly fitted door can't be taken off the hinges just
by removing the hinge pins. So they say. Of course who knows how
well fitted well-fitted is.
Geting in or out by removing the hinge pinst used to be the clever
thing in tv shows of the 50's or 60's, compared to now when they
pretend to have devices that can tell exactly where every FBI agent is
in a 10 story building.
Yes, but depending on the situation, it may be required to open one way or
Most commercial locations must have the door opening out so it will not be
jammed in case of emergency. Most residential codes require the door open in
so it cannot be blocked by snow or by vandals to trap you.
Once you determine your needs. there are security hinges. You may want to
talk to a locksmith for some security ideas.
There should be a law requiring all bathroom doors in commercial
buildings to open outward, so you don't have to touch the handles
after you wash your hands to leave.....
