Copier machines having recirculating document handlers (RDH) may be damaged when a book or other thick document is manually copied on the copier platen with the copier placed in the book-copying mode. Generally, the book-copying mode enables the operator to pivot the RDH away from the platen. However, functional pieces of the RDH may be damaged if it is closed on the book.
