I'm usually kickass at fixing things, (no, really), but the kitchen door handle eluded me this time - there appears to be nothing wrong with the workings, the hinges are all sound and haven't moved, same as the frame, but still it is possible to be locked in the kitchen unable to get out unless there is someone on the other side to pull the handle that little bit further.

I was at a loss quite what to do about it, until I saw a picture on Pinterest that looked like something that would help. 

So here is the "anti-jammer":


And laid out flat:


It would also be great for muffling the sound of doors closing if you happen to have a "little slammer" or even a "big" slammer, in the house!!   Wink

I put a tutorial on my blog if you want to know how to make one: http://snottydog.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/door-anti-jammer-how-to/

Thanks guys!   Smiley

I wish I could claim it as my own, but I only came up with it after seeing something similar on Pinterest.

Awesome solution to a crappy problem!

It sounds like your door handle is just flawed from the factory. If it's new and you remember where you got it, you may be able to get it exchanged. Canadian Tire will replace flawed goods without a receipt, so you may be in luck!

It was on when we moved in, and started happening after a few months.  I don't like to pester the landlord about fixing stuff - it's often an excuse to put the rent up! - so finding this fix is ideal.  :-)

Kickass idea for my living room door. It's glass and keeps slamming shut every time I open the balcony. One of these days it'll break... I think I'm going to make one of these felt holders.

I recently made on of these for a pregnant friend of mine.  It's not an anti-jammer, but will prevent the door from
clicking.  Of course I didn't take a photo before sealing it into the mailer.  :\

I saw these awhile back as well. Keep meaning to make some for the doors so my 2 yr old can't shut herself into rooms and not get out.  Roll Eyes
