I think it's mainly the age that actually could do it. I think that at the time I had my inspection I had 3 and 4 year olds and they could definately do it on their own. I'm up for renewal and my rep will be coming out within the next couple of months. I'm going to clarify it with her. Maybe she said that because of the age of kids I had at the time. I can't imagine my 20 month old opening the door by himself.
