The Flat Head

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — admin @ 6:11 am

It always amazes me how much longer projects take then the time estimated in the package or what you allocated. Case and point I am putting up new blinds for the windows. I was really happy when I opened the hardware and read the instructions: 2 brackets, 4 screws, no assembly, piece if cake! Wrong! The dreaded flat head machine screw…I for the life if me cannot understand the reason for the flat head. I am sure it was a great option when there were no options, but not today. It strips, it slips, it makes you bite your lip. Add to this an extremely tight area to put the bracket and you have frustration city. Couple things to take from this: 1. Tools tools tools. He who dies with the most tools wins. True!! 2. Professional installation is always better if the price is right. There has to be a perceived value. I always start with safety. If what you are installing is dangerous to you or others when installing or in the future I always lean toward the pros. Electrical and structural modifications come to mind. Example would be overhead garage storage that holds 700 lb over your car and kids. Unless you are in construction this is certainly not a DIY, no matter what they say. Give a call to Storage Overhead Solutions, a company that has installed over 26,000 units, for a professional installation. www.storageoverhead.com
By the way the blinds look great despite my lost love for the Flat Head.
