Reinstalling hard doors can be dangerous

A warning to those of us who have hard doors. It was a rainy day and I thought I'd put my doors back on. Well, the door slipped off the hinge and landed straight up on my left foot cutting a nice gash across my big toe down to the tendon, seven stitches, and fracturing the bone. I had on deck shoes which suffered no damage, just glad I didn't have on my filp-flops. Be careful and keep your feet clear.

I wasn't even going to reply to such a thread. But... How did it slip off? You shouldn't let it go until the pins are completely seated. Never had an issue with this myself. I guess next time ask for some help, accidents do happen but most can be avoided. Sorry for being critical but, c'mon man.

I have had a wet one slip on me when I first took them off. Suckers are way heavier than they look! Just missed the toe thankfully....

I got tired of putting on my steel toe shoes, safety goggles, hardhat and gloves just to take off my hard doors. Now I just leave them off permanently.

Keep in mind that HMS is from the Carolina's...most likely Gin N Tonics were involved in this incident.

I always roll the window down, so I can grab the top of the window frame....

I realize my comment was sort of harsh. I apologize. They really aren't that heavy though. When I remove/install my hard doors, i get in the mind set that I'm handling somewhat heavy objects and make sure I be careful. Accidents do happen though...I'm just really strong! Haha
