No screw pack in the box?  No problem!

Thank you to Rich McKie of School District 38 Richmond, BC, Canada for today’s Fixed-it Friday photo!

    Sad, but too true, too often.
    Give the installer points for the 5th screw fastening & making the head gasketing (almost) continuous

    BC, Canada EH ? Had to be a square head (Robertson) screw in the bunch.

    This is actually more common than you realize. Some contractors just love the hex head screws because they do not strip the head like a phillips head screw. I have seen this on exit devices as well. I am sure most have experienced the same

    The “Robertson” square-drive fasteners are a tip-off that this photo was taken in Canada, eh?

    i have seen it on new installs. it may not be a true “fix it Friday”

    That looks almost exactly where I work! The only difference is that the screws aren’t stripped, the hex heads aren’t rounded, and there isn’t 31 coats of paint over it.

    Don’t laugh too much at us Canucks as LCN use to produce the 4040 and a few other lines at a factory just west of the city of Toronto That little town is now the city of Mississauga …
