Most of the time we use an elevator for its simple function; being able to travel between the floors of a building without using the stairs, however did you know that there are a range of secret hacks that can be found within an elevator? From hacks that will save you precious seconds to the ones that can speed up your travel time, we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about these hacks. It is important to note that they may not work on every elevator- however you are certain to find a model that it does work on somewhere…

  1. If you are in a rush, this hack can save you some extra time to make it into the office. Simply hold down the button for your floor and simultaneously press the ‘door close’ button in order to bypass all the other floors that have requested the elevator. If all goes correctly, the car should go straight to your floor.


  1. We’ve all met an elevator hooligan who likes to press every single button in an elevator then run out, leaving you to deal with the car stopping on every single floor. Sure, this isn’t much of a problem if your floor is relatively low but those on floor 20 can grow tired very easily. Elevators that are new and have ‘static sensitive’ buttons can actually benefit from this tactic. These type of buttons are the ones that light up after being pressed and if you find that you have pressed the wrong floor button, you can correct this by selecting loads at once like the troublemakers above and the panel should reset itself. Then simply press the correct floor.
