Folding Handrail

I have been told you can get locked inside your RV by kids or someone folding in the handrail against the entrance door. Has anyone else heard this or had it happen to them? If so, is there a solution to keep this from happening.

If I leave it folded against the slide, it easily moves it out of the way when I extend it. I don't think it would be difficult to open the door with it folded against it.

If the outside handrail is positioned against the door...there is no way to get door open from the inside. I drilled a hole on the door side of the lower bracket and installed a long shank lock into the hole thus not allowing the handle to close.

Sure you can , but with a bad back, I would rather spend 15 seconds putting a lock in a hole than falling out of a trailer.....

Perhaps without damaging the door. Iíll bet money I can open the door with the grab bar against it.

Not sure where you camp but we have never had a problem with someone playing around.

I just tried it and you can open the door very easy, it took minimal effort to open the door.

It is a scam posting

The handles are designed so that you can push the door open.
