Deadlatching is one of the things most builders in my area don't
understand. Also, most of my customers. I had an interesting
conversation one time with a truck driver I know. He was telling
me he could get into a certain building with two knives. One to
pry back the deadlatch trigger, and a second knife to pry back
the latch. I showed him what deadlatching was. How it worked. One
of the rare moments when he didn't have much to say.

You can't shout down a troll.
You have to starve them.

Yeah, Jim Rockfish (Rockford! Rockford!) was a pretty neat guy. I
used to love that TV show.

"Just like on TV" or "just like the cops" is the reason I no
longef own a flat bar for unlocking cars. I got tired of hearing
that.
