Was that the TV show where that bloke got out of tricky situations by using stuff at hand? I'm doing a too slow reno on a flat near home. I wandered over last night after dinner to test fit a bedroom door that I had put a new latch into. So I went into the bedroom and hung the door on and then closed it. I was pleased that it worked perfectly and felt very clever. I felt less clever when I realised that the handle for the door was on the floor in the loungeroom, along with my phone and the only keys to the flat. The only things in the room with me were a couple of saw horses, a saw, a steel ruler and a Stanley knife. So I channelled my inner MacGyver. If I was more familiar with the show, I would have hummed the theme song. I made a cut in the sawhorse and used the ruler to lever off a piece of wood. Then I used the Stanley knife to fashion it into a spindle that I could insert into the latch and open the door. Luckily, it was a new latch and turned easily. I didn't tell the family when I got home because they would have given me 'that look', so this is our secret, okay.
