Here’s the Simple Way to Install Hardware

By: Joe Truini

Sometimes, your hand gets in the way while tackling home improvements — but not with this tip.

Tackling home improvements often requires installing all sorts of hardware.

The installation can be challenging if one hand is in the way — to hold the hardware in place — while your other hand drives in a screw or drills a pilot hole.

Here’s a Simple Solution: Use a piece of double-stick tape to hold the hardware in place.

Stick the tape on the hardware, and then drill or screw the item into place.

Watch the video to see how.
