    Doing elevator stuffing on the top floor is not smart.

    HAS ANY ONE EVER ASSISTED IN USING A CYLINDER KEY TO RELEASE
    LATCH ON A ELEVATOR DOOR ?

    I have. The key was not a cylinder, though. More of an offset wrench with small proprietary end.

    Your certified and licensed elevator mechanic will have what is needed. Such persons are quite inexpensive when compared to lawsuits, repair bills, hospital co-pay, and/or funeral costs.

    Hello,

    I have set sometimes people free from the elevator in our building.
    Be VERY carefull.
    We always let the elevator go to a floor manualy, then open the door manualy with the key.
    In holland the key has a triangle inside (see photo).

    Greetings,
    Bertus

    He may have taken a vacation. He has only been gone around a week so. I think he would wish the forum farewell if he left on purpose.

    Hopefully his computer hasn't croaked or his internet service is not down.

    My computer has slowed down to crawl and security is rejecting a lot
    things,I have a private message for many months that I did not open,
    because of the security thing. The elevator question was for safety
    information,I understand the law and liability to help people.I guess
    every state and country has laws about helping.
    Thanks Again Guys
