--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Adaptation of a standard round doorknob includes a lever to make it easier to use by a person with hand weakness. Illustrates doorknob adaptation made with 2 round junction box covers, 2 1/2 inch bolts and nuts (4), and a strip of aluminum. One of the junction box covers has a slot cut to allow it to be slipped over the narrow part of the doorknob near the door; the other has a circle cut out of the center so it won't slip off the face of the knob. The aluminum strip is riveted to the front circle and bent to make a horizontal lever, and the two plates are bolted together around the knob. SKILLS REQUIRED: Metalworking.
