Question about Hand Tools

1 Answer

I have a 7 ft long tool storage box [gang box] that has a hinged cover. There is a flexible rubber seal over the hinge to keep water out. The rubber is split the entire length. I do not know the mfg. of the tool box. Any suggestions as to where I can purchase a suitable replacement.

    Thank you, but what I have/need is 6in wide. The rubber is glued to 2 metal strips and the entire assembly is then pop riveted to the gang box. This seals the hinge assy. and allows flexibility to open/close the lid and maintain the seal the entire 7ft. I have not been able to find material 7ft X 6in, either rubber or leather, to repair. I keep it covered with a tarp now.

Lots of water in the boot, mainly accumulated into the spare tyre holding space after rain. Carpet is mostly dry except the edge near the boot opening. The cover board edge nearby is also wet.

There are a couple of obvious reasons for this. If the water is getting in when the car is not moving tghen it is almost certainly the boot lid not beeing corectly positioned or that the rubber seal around the boot is damaged / not fitted corectly. Get a thin piece of card and shut it between boot lid and rubber, if it moves freely along there is a gap (you need to rtry this all the way around the boot). Start inbetween the hinges, the go to 1 side. Repeat for all sides. If it is loose look at bolts on hinges to see if they have moved from original position, you will see marks in the paint around the bolt heads if it has moved. Try loosening the bolts and moving the boot lid until the blots are in the original position. Do 1 at a time and do not remove bolts. If there is no sign of the boot lid being moved you need to inspect the rubber to make sure that it is seated correctly and that it has not perished or been cut anywhere. To stop wheel rusting lift out of whhel well and put some timber in the bottom to lift the wheel out of any water.
Hope this helps. If there is a gap, loosen bolts on one side wshere the hinge is fastened to car and push downon the top of the hinge, this should tighten that side, then repeat for the other hinge. Note if there arte 3 hinges start on one side and move accross in turn.

Adjust the hinges, one side is not sealing


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

In to your question: No.

The problem with these units is that the covers are very flexible. I am to manually bent the cover back in shape.

Before you do that, Make sure the gasket is not iced up some where. Also, make sure the gasket is even in height. Your can buy a cover gasket for your unit, but if the cover is bent out of shape you are back to the same problem.

How to switch my door to other side

Remove hinges and screws, lay door on floor and remove screws around the edge of door then turn exterior of door around so handle is on the side you want (make sure the shape of gasket that seals the door is correct so it closes)and put screws back on edge of door . Remove all rubber plugs on side you now want to install hinges on and place hinges there . Remove door latch and place it on opposite , that should do you .

Washer shaking, making loud noise and leaking water

Sounds like a tub support could be defective causing excessive tub movement splashing water outside the washer. Try to move the tub by hand and see if it is firm and snaps back to its center position. If the tub is loose, lift the top cover off by using a non marring tool to pry the front up and lift the cover back on the hinges. Inspect the tub supports for broken or worn rubber shock absorbers. Look at both the tub support shafts and the corner stabilizer attached to the frame and the outer tub. You may need to inspect the fill hose and the water injector to see if it is loose or cracked.

Water leaking out of door , seems like it might be a problem with the door hinge ?

Not likely that you have a hinge problem, but it can happen, especially if water has been dribbling down the back side of the front panel from the dispenser area, getting on the hinge, and causing it to bind up. Replacing the hinge is a pain because the screws are put in with thread lock, requiring heating or even drilling in some cases. If you have water dripping down the front of the machine from the door, the most common reason is that there is some lint or hair on the bottom side of the glass door, preventing a complete seal to the gray rubber gasket. Generally, just cleaning off the bottom of the glass door will fix it. If that does not do it, you can try moving the spring clamp (which holds the front of the gray tub seal) from the bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position) Sometimes, the leak is caused because someone pushed the washer into place by placing their hands just below the door and actually deformed the metal front panel inward, preventing a seal between the door glass and the gray tub seal. If that is the case, it may be corrected by removing the spring retaining clamp, taking the front of the gray tub seal off, pulling outward a bit on the metal panel at the bottom of the door openings, and replacing the seal and retaining band again.

there are plastic covers over the hinges, which may be part of the faceplate. being a compaq the hinge screws are most likely torx head screws. compaq used to make a special tool for removing the plastic covers on their laptops. the tool was a bar with a piece of fiberglas circuit board embedded in it. you insert the circuit board into the groove between the top and bottom covers and twist. this is, of course after removing all of the cover screws. some of the cover screws on the display may be hidden under rubber bumpers.
