Use Bungee Cord To Secure Door
I thought this would be a good way of added safety, too We do this at night to help with airflow between our rooms since we have furbabies we keep out of the hall at night. We put a bungee cord around one door handle and then hook the other end around another nearby door. We use a small piece of plywood in the doorway so that the door is ajar for airflow, but the cats cannot open it to come into the bedroom hallway at night.
I had a thought that this would be be good for additional security too as a burglar would never expect the door to be secured in this way. It would give extra time to call 911 or reach for your weapon of choice.
