I thought I was losing my MIND!

After 3 years I decided it was time to pop open the access door to my Roo's furnace for some general cleaning, vacuuming etc. No big deal since the door is hinged on the top, just undo the latch at the bottom and swing it open. Oh wait a minute, it looks like the door is hinged at the bottom so that must be a latch at the top. Uhhhhhh, no that looks like a hinge on top! Wait, what am I missing here? Pull on the top, pull on the bottom, aaarrrrrggghhh what am I missing??!!! WHAT??...BOTH SIDES ARE HINGED??? WHAT KIND OF IDIOT THOUGHT OF THAT??? WHY WOULD YOU HINGE OPPOSITE ENDS OF A DOOR???

FR does it a lot, it's limited access and much cheaper and faster than a knob and a door catch.

Then why use hinges at all? Just put some screws in it. They're just messin with us. Probably sitting around on break laughing about it.

I guess I'm confused. You literally have to take the hinges off one side or the other to get the cover off?

Yep.......Mine has the sub-woofer behind it.....when you open it, there's a right nice breeze blow'n in, so I covered the inside with a thin piece of lexan....no draft now!

Keeps kids out but hinges provide a visual that the door can be opened for access if necessary.

Maybe the hinges on both sides give you a choice which way to open it???

So have you looked for the hidden camera? You may end up on America Funnest.

How does the Furnace get its return air if you put plexiglass over the opening? Or the bass get out if it is a sub without vibrating.
