This is a question Bodge Jobs

If you can't fix it with a hammer and a roll of duck tape, it's not worth fixing at all, my old mate said minutes before that nasty business with the hammer and a roll of duck tape. Tell us of McGyver-like repairs and whether they were a brilliant success or a health and safety nightmare.

Not me but my dad
My old man briefly had a catering van which was stored overnight in the garden. In order to keep the fridge/freezer running it required an electricity supply.

The solution came thusly:


Ran through a vent-brick-dealy in the wall to a plug socket in the kitchen and then connected using the correct type of outdoor plug. Fantastic.

My dad then fitted a security light to the house in order to protect the catering van (how??). This is where the trouble starts.

Rather than fitting a switch inside the house, and running the cable through the wall and to the light, he chose to smash open the above linky’d outdoor plug (because it is already outside) take his power supply from inside and run the cable to the light.

But that was absolutely fine, because he then filled the gaping hole with silicone…..

Don’t worry, the house was knocked down.
