We often joke that some people should not be allowed to handled tools because they're just bad with them. (And don't get us started on Gorilla glue!) But sometimes, no matter how bad of a job someone did, you have to admire the fact that they tried.
Case in point, this recliner. The photo on the right shows how the springs should look (except the fastener is different).
And this one shows you what the owner did to try to solve the problem of loose springs. Like I said, at least they tried.
