Unique skills

Unfortunately my son was right when assessing that I have a skill which he did not have and that I could therefore help home with his car...

He was failing to loosen the nuts on the wheel he was changing.

Sadly the unique skill I have was described by him as "30kg more mass than he has".

Saldy, he is right.



  1. You can't knock a 6" nail in with a tack hammer?

  2. Top tip: put the wheel-brace on the nut at a horizontal angle, then find a bit of road-side detritus to prop-up the upward-moving anti-clockwise arm, then simply lower the car gently a bit. Works every time.

  3. Kicking the wheel brace is where its at!
