Another Use for an Old VHS Tape

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 969 Posts

A VHS tape being used to prop a door open.Over the last several days, I have been redoing my storage room. Taking things out and in is ridiculous when the chamber in my pneumatic closer no longer works.


I used to prop it open with a hammer, but I needed it so much in the store room I had to find a replacement. I tried three different types of caps which all caved. Then it was a rock, then a couple over sized glass nuggets. Nothing worked.

Then I was taking some VHS movies to our donation station and it hit me. This works perfect for keeping the door wide open and I am as happy as a clam. I will be doing a craft/project soon with some so keep an eye out for it!

If it were my screen door, and I hadn't already put in 4 requests for it to be fixed, I might.
