Tech Breakthrough – the reverse nut

Not so long ago, as is the nature of these things, the toilet broke. Well, not the entire toilet, just the handle. And actually not even the handle – just the lever that connects it to the chain.

Anyway it took me 4 days and 2 visits to the hardware store. The eureka moment was when I actually read the instructions and realized that I needed to screw the nut counter clockwise.

Of the several times that I tried nut, not once did my brian think of trying the poor binary cousin. Also, directions were useless as well.

Now I am much wiser, at least in the opposite direction!
