Ridiculous Household Hacks

Mr. Chanclas is the king of ridiculous household hacks. He once repaired a speaker in his car with a twig and two twist ties. Today I present Chanclas' Improvised Door Latch:


Last week the latch broke on the storm door that leads from our semi-enclosed workshop to the carport. This meant that the door would either hang open, inviting chickens inside to lay eggs amongst the workshop tools or poop on the rubber floor mats, or it would jam closed, preventing us from entering. This was a problem. So while we look for a replacement latch Mr. Chanclas rigged  this ridiculous, yet entirely functional, assembly. Knowing us, I wouldn't be too surprised if it is still in use six months from now.

  1. Now you definitely have to do a follow up in 6 months! I can guarantee it would still be there at my house.

  3. Ummm...yaaaaaaa...we do that stuff, too. I regret the day I told Steve that "half way is good enough for me." Some of the temporary fixes that were going to "make do for a day or two" are a decade old. Time just flies by and well, they still work.
