OK, doing a small fix for an elderly couple on my way home today and needed the access the loft space above the kitchen.

So I tried to push the loft hatch upwards and it was being prevented from moving directly upwards, so I had to very carefully slide it away - and wondering what was the issue I looked up........

Agreed. I'd put money on that loft hatch having been extended. Prior to which those cables would have run past the end as they do on a lot of properties.

Perhaps the joist was too large or rough to do chin-ups on. The PVC should be much smoother :lol
