Sometimes, the universe likes to throw random challenges our way. Making the best out of a bad situation can be pretty difficult, but if you have amazing engineering skills and a boundless pool of creativity, there’s nothing you can’t do. Case in point, these 50 engineers who fashioned makeshift solutions to make the best out of the worst situations.
1. Secure Storage Shed
If you don’t have a lock wide enough to keep the latches shut on your outdoor shed, what choice do you have to protect your power tools from getting stolen? This engineer didn’t let anything stop them. They drilled a hole into a wrench, slipped the wrench in between the latches, and used a regular-sized lock to keep the wrench of moving.
This ingenious method of keeping the doors shut has worked at keeping intruders, man or beast, out. However, if a bear comes around, they’ll more than likely bash the wooden doors in to gain access to whatever is hidden in that magic shed.
