Tight Places

Sometimes it’s necessary to install a nut and bolt into a tight place. It’s often very difficult to hold the nut in position while it is being driven onto the bolt. Sometimes tiny wrenches don’t work well or are hard to get into a tight spot. I solve that problem by rubbing a bit of extrastrength glue-stick glue on my finger tip, then touching it to the nut. This sticks the nut to my finger tip. I then put my finger into the tight place and hold the nut in position while tightening it.
