Title: Lo tech fix for an annoyance
Post by: regw on July 31, 2020, 05:09:34 PM
Every time I've removed the battery cover I've lost/found one
of the bloody screws because it had a missing captive washer.

Sometimes I'd put the screw in a 'safe place' and then forget where
that 'safe place' actually was and spend ages hunting for it
Much effing and blinding usually ensued.

Before I put it back on today I used some material from a milk bottle
and scissors to fashion a locking washer
There, get lost now ya little *&^%$£@

Very impressive old skool solution from a very impressive person. I love little “hacks” like this. So clever and handy to know! Thank u for sharing!
