The most famous of all the structures at Coral Castle was the stone swinging door, which could be conveniently opened by just using your pinky finger. As it turned out, the door operated on a metal rod that had been inserted into the door, which had been drilled from top to bottom by hand. The door sat on a truck bearing that allowed the door to open smoothly, even by a slight change in the velocity of the wind.
