    Thetford cassette doors. WHY

    :shout::shout::shout:Why have a door that needs to be opened with two hands (a thumb on each button), when they know very well that in one hand we have the cassette:Doh:

    You have two hands free before taking the cassette out - just leave the door open :thumb:

    Do like I do Jim. Cheat by putting the cassette on the ground to open the door. Ha Ha, they've got to get up a bit earlier if they want to fool me :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::wooo::wooo:

    The lock is not there to stop anyone nicking your poo but to stop them swapping your empty cassette for their full one. :Doh:

    The reason they have two buttons to push is;

    One button is for the Number 1's

    2nd button is for the Number 2's....


    Go on, you know you want to........:RollEyes:

    More worryingly is that there is only a lock on one of our buttons...

    and that is the button for the Number 2's.......:RollEyes:



    :BigGrin: sorries.....:Blush:

    Little finger and thumb usually does the trick. On most doors, you can slightly adjust the locks, so that when you push the top button, it pops out slightly allowing you to push the bottom to release.......that didn't sound too good when talking about toilet doors did it?

    The Sugababes had a hit song called "Push the Button"..... rather catchy actually...:RollEyes:

    I'm 100% sure it had nothing to do with Thetfords though.......:Blush:

    i find a very good squeeze on the bottom pops one out easily but if not take more fibre:Rofl1:

    talking about buttons..good job theres not a turd...i mean third:Rofl1:

    i suppose they make the doors secure so you dont eject a full cassette when taking a roundabout too fast:Eeek:
