In the middle of our van conversion and we didn't have any clamps! luckily these biners were the right size. Any other creative uses for climbing gear out there?

I think you want some more pressure for that to actually adhere properly.. Sam Fox

the more important question is why they used that many slat boards, screwed them all down, and put in a spine, it's like an overweight side by side bunk bed made out of concrete, but, I could just be triggered by the extreme overuse of materials...These pictures remind me of buying my girlfriend a 20 pack of philips head bits...because she just loves stripping

I can't believe you are using that 3-sided engineers scale. That is a blatant misuse of delicate measurement tools that are intended for use on paper. Your engineering fundamentals professor is rolling over in his grave.

And don't call it a ruler. Or you'll get scale slapped upside your head.

I use an old JB helmet as a hanging flower basket. Also, for your van but perhaps better for a pick-up shell mount, use hangers to bolt down the shell to the side panels. You might get some "colored" hangers and place them strategically high to use as an organizing of crap tool. Roy Suggett

Magnetron segregator makes an annoying key ring, safer than using it for climbing.
