Whether in the bathroom or the kitchen, we often meet these pretty chrome nuts and faucets. Unfortunately when one wants to intervene on it, one realizes very quickly that this adornment is very fragile and that simply wanting to screw or unscrew them with a tool scratches them frightfully. And what a pity!
To prevent this from happening to you too, use this little trick. The principle is simple: interpose between the tool and the chrome a kind of martyr. For example, use a large rubber band and wrap it around the workpiece as best as you can around the future contact space.
For nuts, this protection combines perfectly with the use of a multi-socket pliers that will perfectly adapt to this excess thickness. In addition, the rubber will give it a better grip in addition to avoiding scratches.
Note that this trick also works to easily unscrew a recalcitrant bottle cap.Suggest a tip for this theme
