need help with "Please do not lock or shut this door."
We need to let the night cleaning crew know they are not to shut or lock a door.
Esta puerta debe quedar abierta siempre: no la cierren ni la cierren con llave.
This door must always be left open: don't close or lock it.
I would say:
Por favor, no cierren o usen la llave en esta puerta.
(cerrar = to close, to shut, to lock)
Based on Julian's comment, here is another option that may be better:
"Por favor, no cierren esta puerta y no la cierren con llave." = Please do not close/shut this door and do not lock it.
(cerrar con llave = to lock (with a key)
(cerrar = to close, to shut, to lock (without a key)
Blockeo la puerta. (Lock the door) vs cierra la puerta (Close the door)
