Tip

Tip: Keep doors open

Have a door that tends to close on its own when you want it to stay open? Remove one of the hinge pins and lay it on a concrete surface and strike the center of pin with a moderate hammer blow to bend it. This will make for a tight fit when you tap it back in place and the door will stay open at any position.
