Building doors should be locked, according to a researcher at the University of Manchester who has been working on the subject.
According to Professor James C. Wilson, the research, which was published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, has been carried out in two experiments.
In the first, researchers in Scotland built a building with a door in it, which they then locked with the key provided by the owner.
The second experiment was conducted in the US, where the door was placed on a balcony and locked.
The key provided to the researchers was an old, disposable electric one that was “probably around 50 years old”.
“It was quite easy to find a replacement,” Professor Wilson said.
The researcher also suggested using a small electric torch, which can be used to torch the door or even a lightbulb, to illuminate the door.
The door could be set to automatically open and close, he said, and “you can do that from a number of different ways, such as opening the door, turning the light off or locking the door”.
Professor Wilson said it was not yet clear if this would work, but he had heard reports of people getting stuck in locked doors with a “lock and key” mechanism, which is not as secure as a key.
The University of Glasgow’s Dr Richard Wilson said that there are two main reasons why people might choose to lock their doors with their keys: “First, they can’t be seen when they’re locked.
And second, they think they are safe in case the doors have a key and they’re not, which may be the case.”
Mr Wilson, who has also worked with a locked door in the UK, said that a lock and key would work if you had “an ordinary key”.
However, the professor warned that people should be aware of how they use a key if it is used in a way which is “unacceptable” or not secure.
“If you’re trying to open the door by opening the key or unlocking the door with the keys, you may end up locking yourself and you’ll not be able to get out,” he said.
“And that’s not a good idea.”
