    Won't even touch one of those, because the broken plastic will hang up under the edge of the surround.

    Below is the door bell on my house. Heavy cast brass, (including the button), built to last a lifetime or two.

    Don't worry about it. Fold a door tag 5 times and just scrape out the plastic so it stops ringing and run back to the truck. This is why they're rich. Cheap as :censored2:.

    About half of the doorbells I come across work, so unless the button is lit up, I'm knocking.

    When I was trained we were always told to ring and knock. Still do whenever I need to talk to the customer.

    I love the 10 year old faded post-it reading "doorbell broken KNOCK". Just fix the damn thing already!

    Those cheap doorbells break all the time because the plastic is brittle since its thin and the light stays on all the time. They are on a low-voltage circuit, I will stick my pen in and still ring the broken ones. I knock on the door also out of habit.

    Woke up too many 3rd shifters and babies taking naps. I only ring when necessary, plus my truck is loud enough for them to hear me.

    What gets me is the number of $500,000+ houses that either have the post-it note over the door bell or have no door bell at all. Really? You live in a big house with a few Range Rovers in the driveway, yet can't afford a door bell? Kind of hard to hear someone knocking on the SOLID wood door in a 5,000 sq ft house.
