I'm not hanging from a door hinge. I'm hanging from the steel frame of
one door. The other door is of the sort you're really not likely to
find in the USA. Even trailers are framed in wood, right? This door
and the frame is plastic! The hinge is cheap aluminum. Think of the
cheapest door, frame, and hinge and make it cheaper. Both frames are
set into rebar-reinforced concrete. There are not that many residential
buildings like this in the USA, but they're all over the place here in
The reason it works is because the real pull is on a wooden pole. Well,
sometimes I'm surprised this works. It was a late-night jury rig for
short term use that's now run into almost 2 months. Guess I'll have to
figure out how to take pictures and post them.
