The people who design kitchen cabinet handles (on the doors below the counter, duh) that have, in effect, hooks on them that will catch and grab your clothes should be shot. I risk life and limb just walking around in my kitchen because of those people and their blindness to the risks that their handles pose.

This is **not** a rant about the NRA and gun control. Don't take it there.

Don't wear baggy clothing.

Work naked!

Better yet, let's have OSHA write some regs.

Work naked? "Something" else might get caught on those handles!

Working naked risking more than life and limb and doing a little risk hazard detection instead of destruction around the kitchen should keep you sharp.

Here I thought I was the only one who gets snagged by those pesky cabinet knobs.

The tide is turning. I can feel the ground shaking as our teeming masses swarm at the barricades readying for the fight to restore our safety in the kitchen. Fix the cabinet knobs!!

Maybe we could remove the offending handles and dump a few hundred thousand of them in the designer's front yard.

You probably think William Holden tripped on a throw rug when he fell and hit his head on the bedside table and died. I think he may have caught his bathrobe on one of those pesky cabinet knobs.

Here's what the Medical Examiner had to say: "On the basis of the autopsy findings and the "at scene" investigation, it became clear that the decedent (William Holden) accidentally fell due to tripping over the throw rug on the bedroom floor beside the bed, and fell into the sharp edge of the bedside table causing a deep cut on the right forehead followed by profuse hemorrhage."

For some time, Mr. Holden had a problem with the bottle.....he also had the greatest voice since William Powell:

I always catch clothes in the hardware on doors.

"I always catch clothes in the hardware on doors" writes Death&Taxes.

No no no. *You* don't catch anything on anything.

It's the safety-deficient-design hardware that snags your clothes. Clearly the responsibility rests with the designer, who with malicious disregard for your safety has negligently and irresponsibly designed (over and over and over) hardware that poses a long-term risk of injury and possible death [see the William Holden scenario] to the wholly innocent user of said hardware.

And the architect who spec'd the stuff in. And the builder who put it in, and all of his subs, too. Where's the money?

And the distiller who made the vodka, and the liquor company that distributed the vodka, and the liquor store that sold the vodka, that Mr. Holden had been drinking. And maybe the brewery of the beer, too. Read the gory (literally and figuratively) details. It's all out there

[And it was medical examiner Thomas "Coroner to the Stars" Noguchi, who did the autopsy, just in case you're interested.]

the doors in this house date from 1940, so I doubt that they are safety standards

My house is 8 years old and I have the same problem. No damage to my body (yet), but several torn pants pockets. Lots of muttering curses.

Would a better solution, with less impact on the "legal" system,result from hanging six pack rings on the knobs,along with any unopened cans?

"Fix the cabinet knobs!!"

The English have been saying this for years (regarding parliament).

Preferably with a pair of blunt scissors, Bones. Then they wouldn't be able to screw the rest of us.

Merry Christmas to one and all, even politicians.

I've lost numerous pockets and at least one purse strap from doorknobs. Pitchforks and torches! Arrrrghhhh!
