    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if a word exists which describes the narrow crack between an elevator and its shaft. That little crack through which pieces of paper can inadvertently slip if you drop one when you are entering or leaving the elevator.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    I might say "the slit in the elevator", but may be very American (English).

    Many thanks to you both, perpend and Rover_KE! Both are great suggestions.

    I'm American. I'd call it a gap.
