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.

Inventive
I don't know if they count as bodges, but I fix problems in odd ways.

I made an aquarium snail trap out of a kinder egg by poking it full of holes with a hot needle.

In our last flat I fixed all the door catches (they didn't stay shut) by padding them out with cardboard.

I mended my husband's wing mirror with fimo (although it didn't survive the car wash).

When I was 16 I installed a second dimmer switch in my bedroom using an elaborate and indiscreet pulley system.

I reheeled my boots, re-sewed the zips and glued the buckles back on so many times that towards the end they were held together with superglue and hope.
