Default Missing 10mm sockets ?

I found a use for a 10mm socket, non fastener related LOL

My toilet paper holder broke earlier, I didn't feel like running to a store to buy one at the moment so I improvised.

first pic shows the little reduced part that goes in the TP base, this is the part on mine that broke (on the other end):



I cut the broken reduced part off so the tube is full diameter:



I discovered a 1/2" drive 10mm socket fits firmly inside the plastic tube, no need to secure it, it's a tight fit (tried an 11mm first but the socket end was too big for the hole in the TP base):



socket installed and pushed back so correct smaller end is in the correct spot:



TP tube installed into base (socket end is to the left):



So if your missing a 1/2" drive 10mm, it may be in my bathroom ! LOL


thought this was amusing so I had to share

Good thinking. Almost seems like it should be in the "You know you drive a hardbody when"...you have so many 10mm sockets, you can use them for other purposes!

That's a great practical use for a 1/2"dr. 10mm socket. Also, good job. It takes a lot of dedication to wear one of those out.
