Recently we had a lot of rain and someone had posted a rolled up ton of mailers and junk in my letterbox. Of course, the papers swelled and got jammed in the opening. I've tried brute force, tried ripping little bits off it, but it's still packed tight. Has anyone got any bright spark of an idea how to solve this without putting a new fence in? :)
One of the easiest ways to do this is by getting a hammer and removing one of the boards or taking the nails out of the top of the board. This way you can move the board and get this out.
Thank you everyone for your wonderful suggestions (although the fire one was a bit drastic, even if it might have worked haha!) it's very kind of you to respond.
My lovely son solved it for me yesterday by ripping the centre out with pliers until it loosened enough to come away. Dilemma over, phew!
Take something sturdy and push through the front. You can also take a water hose and soak it , until it softens. Then remove!
Even though rain may have caused the papers to swell and jam, water may be a good way to solve the problem, just as Ana said. It is certainly an easy tip to try.
