I work at Menards (a lumber/hardware store). In one of the aisles we have storms doors – The problem is sometimes the door the customer wants isn’t always the one you can get to very easily, so you have to move all the doors to get to the one they want, because they are all in order by number. Also when you have to stock the doors, you have to move all the doors to put it in the right spot. This is my simple fix – I was really bored at work tonight – made it out of scrape spacer material. Hung on the walls by french cleats.

Thats using your brain! Too bad most people seem to have temporarily misplaced theirs.

Every Menards needs several of these. I could have used one of these on numerous occassions when shopping at our local Menards. I agree with noknot. Good job.
