More Information

This verb refers to what a doorknob does when you push it down:

If the door-opening gizmo is the kind of handle that's shaped like an L, with one leg of the L sticking into the door and the other leg grabbed by your hand, you'd use ghuj or ghujmoH "pivot, swivel."

(qepHom 2020)

For opening a doorknob that you rotate, see jIrmoH.
