Default Other uses for O-Rings...

Here are a few good things to do with

1- ever lose the red straw for the WD-40 can? Of course you have..
use a few large ORings to keep it attached to the can when not in use.
(See pic)

2- use a small Oring, tightly around an Allen wrench, as a stop when installing a seat into a tub and shower faucet. The Oring keeps forward pressure the seat until the
threads bite.

3- when my daughter was little she lost her hair elastics constantly, but an Oring came in handy more then once, and it didn’t rip out her hair like a reg elastic.

4- my buddy gets orings off of amazon, and puts them under the keys on his keyboard, it apparently dampens the clicking sound of the keys when typing.

You may have noticed how the tee and j bend connections on continuous wastes come loose under the kitchen sink, probably due to disposal vibration or an argument with a garbage can.
An old timer gave me some hefty 1-3/8" o-rings and said to use them in place of the slip joint washers at those tee and J bend joints. Works great.

Not sure what a continuous waste is but were they square cut washers? WB only supplies orange square cut washers with all their chrome stuff.

I suppose regular black o-rings of the correct size would work too. Now I have to get a bunch just to have them! Although I prolly already have some in one of my 3 sexauer oring kits.

Agreed, they invented Velcro gloves and take the sheep to the edge of a cliff so they push back..
