    as can be seen I have to duckunder the upper level to enter the room.
    as this is the only duckunder and is 51" high it is not a problem.

    I love the contacts idea!!! Its a simple way to drop the power when the door is open instead of a switch. "solid state" if you will.

    thanks b28 82

    I must admit I like to do things as simply as possible.
    doesn`t always work out but this one did.
