I just tried mine. Since there was nobody inside, I did it from the outside. It did not take much pressure for the bar to swing out of the way. It was easy, possibly because I have swung the bar over the door many times and possibly worn down anything that would bind it.

I don't see any way to post photos to this website - am I missing something? 

E-mail me at purkey@att.net and I will be glad to send you the photos by e-mail.

I believe that the concern is if you are inside and some prankster shuts the handle 'bar' on you.

I also believe that one vigorous, reasonably violent push from inside will clear the obstruction. At least, it did with mine. A steady push won't necessrily do the job, we're talking 'panic mode' here.

If I wanted to figure on buying a new door, hinges and pay for side wall repair I could push to my hearts content. I had my wife try it, I tried it, decided to use a hand file it opens beautifully now. Just don’t file away too much.
