7 cheapest way to attach your cell phone to a tripod and many other ways to set up anywhere else

youtube

No need to watch other people’s videos since this video covers all! The cheapest and easiest ways for all different situations are covered. No problem even if you don’t have any equipment.

There are 5 Billion mobile phone users in the world. For various reasons, you may sometimes need to place or attach the cell phone to somewhere where there is no obvious mechanism for attaching it. In addition, perhaps you do have regular proper holders or adapters, but since you go to different places with your mobile phone, you may be somewhere where you do not have the access to your usual gear, hence we have provided many different ideas in this video.

I promise some of these ideas cannot be found anywhere else. To make a DIY device, other people may say buy this and buy that, but I always use what I have on hand. So bear with me for the longer video since I will show you various different ways that can then be adapted to suit your own situation and inspire you to create something new.

I have published couple of related videos in the past, here are the links:

15 Ways To Not Smash Your Fingers With a Hammer

youtube

After comprehensive research on this topic including visiting the Hammer Museum in Alaska, we present you with these 15 tips. We systematically analyzed the processes and the components involved. For the first few tips we have invented, I guarantee you have never seen anything like these before.

Because there are many different sizes of nails, people with different hand-eye coordination capabilities, different hardness of surfaces, different construction environments, some of these tips may be more useful than others. You don’t need to master all of the tricks, you just need to identify your own problems and choose the best one or the cheapest one to suit your own situation.

Of course, if you never use a hammer, and always hire someone else to do your repairs and remodeling, you will never smash your fingers. Short of that (or having someone else hold the nail while you wield the hammer:) ) , the more hammers you use, the greater the likelihood of injury, especially when you are tired. Thus a good practice is to always be alert, have consistent execution, and constantly remind yourself about sound posture and correct process. Good luck to your fingers. Share this video and help cure your fellow DIYer’s pain.

The easiest and the cheapest way to purify the room air

youtube

The smoke from California fires caused air purifiers to be sold out at many locations. Today I am going to show you how to use what you have or can probably still get, to the room air clean. Compared with the expensive air purifiers on the market, these DIY air purifiers are equivalent but at a much cheaper price.
Three reasons they are cheaper:
1. if you already own a fan, then you don’t have to buy another fan.
2. when buying filters, you can buy whatever size is most suitable for your fan, or is cheaper
3. unlike air purifiers, the filters as well as fans can be bought cheaply (because both items are high volume commodities).

For example both the fans and the filters can be bought for about $15 each.

Build an easy & free home security system in under 5 minutes

youtube

The first part of this video is about how to quickly build a free basic home security system in under 5 minutes. I have listed many options for you, but you don’t have to choose all of them, work with what you have and is the best for you. It is easy — if you are a cell phone user, you should be able to do it. It is usable as it is, and will be sufficient for most users.

However, it is also possible to add features which will improve it. To help advanced users, I introduce a couple more phone apps to get you started. Through the explanation of how these apps work I explain the basics of internet and the home gateway router. I show the communications between different devices among different networks. Understanding this diagram will help you to debug all parts of your security system.

Since it is easy and does not cost anything, why not give it a try? In my neighborhood, burglaries have been increasing. Some people blame this on California’s Prop 47. California’s Proposition 47 downgraded a variety of “non-serious, nonviolent crimes” that had previously been considered felonies to misdemeanors. A thief may now steal something under $950 on a daily basis and it will never rise to felony status. Without your own security cameras, it’s difficult to catch thieves unless they leave fingerprints. One by one my neighbors started buying security cameras and services. Even if you have already bought some cameras, this can complement them by adding even more cameras. I have covered every single one of my windows, and hope that in addition to providing camera footage of any motion around the house, this will also act as a deterrent to possible thieves.

So get your security cameras ready because the latest is that California will end cash bail next year. When the new law takes effect, thieves without money will no longer need to worry about cash bail because by definition theft is not a violent crime.

3 Tapping Glueless Laminate Floor Installation, a Must-See


Did you know that glueless laminate floor planks have more than one tongue and groove? How does this affect the installation? If you are familiar with hardwood floor installation, and you thought laminate floor installation is easier, you could be in for a big surprise unless you take the time to study the floor locking mechanism before you start. Therefore, using the most common kind of glueless-click laminate flooring, we illustrate the tongue and groove locking mechanism and an easy-to-remember 3 tapping installation procedure. To complete the process, we will discuss how to modify this 3 tapping method under a few special conditions or configurations. If you have flooring with a different kind of locking mechanism, based on the process described here, you can easily modify for your own 3 tapping method.

12 DIY Tools For Laminate Flooring Installation


Many times we buy a lot of tools when we start an DIY project. Some of the tools can be used elsewhere, but some of the tools are so specialized they will never be used again in other projects. If you are able to share tools among different projects, of course it will be more economical in the long term and you will have a less crowded tool shed. For those tools only limited to the laminate flooring installation, we have tested them and listed their prices. We also discuss whether you may use alternative tools or make the tools yourself.

Anyway, whether you already have a lot of tools from other projects, or have only limited tools this video would should suit your needs. We first discuss tools specialized for laminate flooring installation. And then we will list type of tools that are needed, i.e. the function of the tools that are needed so that you may match your existing tools inventory with the goal of the installation. If you don’t have many tools and you are not installing large areas, we will show you how to make some of the specialized tools. Note that a few tools at the beginning of the list are essential for this type of installation, while other tools later in the list may or may not be used depending on your requirement/configuration. This list focuses on the installation function; safety related items such as goggles, face mask and knee pads are not listed.

4 Step Minimal Waste Time Saving Laminate/Engineered Wood Installation


How can you have almost zero waste when you install laminate or engineered wood flooring? The laminate flooring salespeople recommend allowing for at least 5% waste. Still, when I installed the flooring from left to right, often I found the right plank was too short and I had to undo the whole row and start all over again. Thus even figuring I will waste 5% of materials (thus money), I can not guarantee I will not also waste time.

In this video, I will show you a very easy simple 4-step process that will not only allow you to save the material (the money) but also the time. In fact, the layout of the whole room can be predicted before the actual installation.

Simplest Early Toilet Leak Detection

Most people don’t realize their toilet leaks water to the drain because it does not leak onto the bathroom floor where it can be noticed. However it does waste water.

5 Different Ways To Make Your Toilet Use Less Water


In addition to flushing one tank of water, my experiment showed another 3 liters of water flowed to the overflow tube. I was very surprised to discover this. I will provide a zero cost fix to this problem. I will provide 5 different ways to save on water used in toilet flushing. These techniques are based on the amount of water the toilet tank releases, assuming the toilet bowl is efficient. Watch this video to see the efficient toilet siphon effect: https://youtu.be/_EP7LZdnMXo Note that if your toilet bowl is not efficient, reducing the water flushed may not clear the solid waste well, you may have to flush twice. So one of the best techniques is to have a dual flush system which uses more water for the solid waste than the liquid waste. See the explanation and installation of the dual flush system: https://youtu.be/1RDGznJm-U8

You won’t need to waste water repeating my experiments, instead watch this video, share to as many people as you can, favorite it, like it, so that we save water.
