Every now and then, I have to tighten the allen screw that holds my driving mirrors in the correct position.
Looking for my allen wrenches
I never can remember where I store the wrenches.

And looking some more
I know they are in a toolbox, but which one.

Now what size do I need?
I cannot remember what size I need, either.
Will this step stool be high enough?
I always hope that I won't have to drag out my long ladder, but it's fruitless hoping.
Maybe my three step stool will be enough

I had to drag out my tall ladder  to reach this height of the loose mirror.
If the screw would loosen more often I would have more chances to remember the equipment!


  1. Think of all the physical and mental exercise you got! ;)

  2. How about putting a ribbon on the allen key and hanging it in your cab.

    Hope you have a good day. Sue 7 Polly

  3. haha..I have a similar situation at work. I have to replace the things once a year that require a socket wrench. I can never remember which socket to use, which one to take off first, etc. I have to go through the exact same mental anguish yearly. I should write it down....that would be too easy.

    1. I'm glad that I'm not the only one struggling with seldom used tools!

  4. But if the screw loosened more, you'd have to drag all that stuff out more often! Have you thought about using Loctite on it, so that it doesn't loosen?

    1. Mrs Bunny's mom, One year I decided to do that very thing, and found that the allen screw was the only thing holding the entire mirror on the motorhome, so I was struggling trying to get the screw out just enough without dropping the mirror, and put the locktite on it and getting the screw tightened quickly!
