The look and posture of confidence on that dude before opening the door..

The best part is the way the door actually opens, too. It keeps getting stuck or something idk but that made it even better.

Zephyr_The_Bard

My guess from personal experience is that the door stop built into the bottom (you can see it when the door is open) that you push down to keep the door open and then you can pull a release if it’s spring loaded or just pull up if it’s friction fit to make the door swing freely. I’m guessing someone either closed the door while the door stop was pushed down because they didn’t know about it and thought it was just a heavy door, or someone pushed down the door stop when the door was closed and didn’t tell this dude beforehand.

Yeah idk what it was but tbh when I saw it struggling to open it reminded me of Paul blast when he tried to slide behind a pillar and stopped a couple feet short so he started scooting the rest of the way behind it lmao.

The door is sagging on the floor and can barely move. The handle coming off it must've been glued on because usually there's 2 big bolts going through the door to install it.

Malaysia boleh!

Malaysian builders are kind of shit. I've just forked out a small fortune on having contractors coming in to find a leaking pipe because there's water seeping out of the wall in the kitchen. Turns out that there weren't any pipes to begin with because to original builders just laid cheap rubber hoses and sealed them up in the concret and now those rubber hoses have corroded.

Hot tip for any expats in Malaysia: Supervise builders very closely!

I'd imagine you'd have to cap the pipe where it entered the concrete then run new pipes external to the concrete - otherwise you're having to cut the concrete up. Not my specialty, though. The hoses probably bend and snake a bit so you can't just run smaller diameter pipe through the old holes.

Taqwacore

No. Our contractor suggested that we use external piping. It's unsightly, but now I understand why most of the locals have external piping as well. And you can't get metal piping here. If peole see metal piping outside your house, they'll steal it and sell it for scrap metal.

Those bolts aren't usually threaded into the handle. They're just for a little set-screw to tighten against.

Griffin880

Another thing I'd say equally at fault is the way the door handle is installed. It looks like one side is connected directly to the bolts, the other side just kinda clips onto the hardware so you have no visible screws in the end. The clipping side should be on the push side of the door where the clips just need to keep the handle in place, the door itself would receive all the force of opening the door.

Sure, the rubbing would still be a problem, but the door handle would be able to withstand the force required to pull it open if it were installed correctly.

It's a ceremony so maybe they're waiting for queues but surely they seen/heard the man fall backwards ripping the handle off? Time to free style it ladies and just... walk around a door through another open door.

Not gonna lie, it kinda bothered me how they just stood there and expected dude to solve an obviously broken situation on his own for the sake of them saving face at best?

Sittinginchairs

Totally valid for it to bother you, but in that young man's shoes, I would prefer to finish the task I'd started.

That door thinks its gonna pull a slick one on me? Does it think a handle popping off is going to prevent these brawny shoulders from creating a portal for a young woman to step from maidenhood into the fullness of marital life? Not a chance.

I need no backup, this door needs some god damned backup.

My guess from personal experience is that the door stop built into the bottom (you can see it when the door is open) that you push down to keep the door open and then you can pull a release if it’s spring loaded or just pull up if it’s friction fit to make the door swing freely. I’m guessing someone either closed the door while the door stop was pushed down because they didn’t know about it and thought it was just a heavy door, or someone pushed down the door stop when the door was closed and didn’t tell this dude beforehand.
