I've tried it on a few elevators since reading about it, didn't work. I think it only works on specific types...and possibly just older ones. Not really sure though.

Most elevators these days have the "fire" keys that allow users to select the floor an also hold it during operation.

Edit: NM, this version has different directions...maybe this way will work
