What if I have a door with a handle you push down?
This would work instead, or you could create your own design and post it.

Great for a kids room, bad thing is you might have to glue the legos together to prevent them coming off and becoming a choke hazard. Depending on the kids age of course
Haha cool! Great job and congratz!
Ha! That is so cool!
