Chinese “hardware packages”.

Pet Peeve. The “hardware packages” included with the Chinese made POS we buy.

I hope everyone knows that the immediate and smartest action to take with these packages is to immediately “Throw them out!”.  If you don’t throw them away then I hope you have a handy ‘broken screw extractor’ on hand.

I suppose that it is touching that the Chinese have been able to re-purpose our grandmother’s bone china into screws made from that recycled material. But not very practical.  I bought a kitchen towel bar from Amazon and didn’t follow my own advice; soon afterwards I was using a vice-grip to turn out the stub of the screw.

Another good tip is to apply a finish from a spray paint can before installation. I will soon be removing the recently installed towel bar and repairing to the basement to repaint. The finish on the “New” piece began to wear off from the vigor of being installed.

Dear President Trump. Please cut President Xi’s throat as soon as possible.
