Dear B-Hebrew

I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on the action described in Deu
15:17, when a slave wanted to remain in his or her master's house.  What was
the significance of going to the door?  Was the ear actually nailed into the
door/doorpost, or was it just pierced on the threshold, this being a
symbolic place to perform such an action?
