Almost all valves turn to right or clockwies to close and left or counterclockwise to open. You might try spraying some WD-40 on bottom side of knobs.Let it set for a few mins. Tap on top of knobs lightly with a non marring tool such as wooden hammer handle and try to open. If it still wont open you can wrap knob tightly with masking tape or duct tape to protect the finish and use channel lock pliers or pipe wrench to try to open.Don't force it as you could break valve stem. Spray again with WD-40 and repeat above procedure until valve moves freely. Hope this helps. Thanks P:S WD-40 also works well to remove any adhesive left when you remove tape.

How to Open to refill a Reusable Acrylic Pepper & Salt Mill

Hello. This is about opening an acrylic pepper and salt mill or pepper grinder so that you may refill this kitchen utensil. One will usually find that the chrome knob on top of the pepper mill is used to open the pepper mill can be too difficult to open, because one cannot grip the chrome knob on top of the pepper mill to open. I am going to offer three different options for opening a pepper mill:
1) Use a pair of work gloves with specialize dripping material on finger tips. Hold top bulb while turning chrome knob counter clockwise.
2) A small nut wrench with cellophane tape on chrome knob to above marring chrome knob.
3) Get a wrench and a towel. Fit folded towel in jaws of wrench and place towel and open wrench on chrome knob and turn counter clockwise. Practice on a pine dowel to know appropriate pressure to use to avoid marring the chrome knob. If you can replace the chrome smooth knob with a grip friendly knob, if possible.

Finally, do not over tighten knob just finger tight.

My soon lock the bathroom door from the inside and now i cant get into the bathroom. how do i get the door knob off so that i can get inside the bathroom?

The short answer is that you can't get the doorknob off from the outside.

Lock sets and door knobs are purposely made that way to thwart any potential thief with a screwdriver from simply removing the door knob to gain access into our homes and rooms.

What you MAY TRY is to carefully pry loose the door trim in the area of the door knob away from the door jamb. You may have to carefully remove a trim nail in the process.
Then experiment with a flat, thin, solid tool like one of those rounded spatulas used for frosting cakes slipped in between the trim piece and the jamb. Your goal is to try to get the spring latch to retract away from the door's strike plate like James Bond with a credit card. Look at one of your other open doors to visualize how the mechanism works.
This is going to require some patience, but it may save you from having to destroy the door or frame to get into the room.

Good luck!

I need to remove a Moen towel bar. It has a tab under the bottom but I dont know what to do

There should be a "set-screw" (a very small screw) at the bottom of base (fat part) of the towel bar. It screws in to hold the fat part of the bar to the "tab". Loosen the screw by turning it counter-clock-wise. Once loose, the towel bar will lift off the tab. Be careful not to lose the screw!

Small tear drop leak from chrome bathroom radiator, where the joint is, poor weld!

I turned off the radiator and let the leak stop, located the pin head hole, cleaned the tiny area with emery paper, put a spot of flux in the hole then applied a tiny drop of solder. Worked a treat.
