DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with limited grasp to toggle wall light switches on and off. Drill a small hole through the end of each of the toggle switch. Fix a split ring, available at bead stores or fishing supply stores, through each hole, then coil one end of a 20-inch length of fencing wire around the ring with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Next, drill a small hole in one side and out the other of a wine bottle cork and thread the wire through the hole. Then, again using the needle-nose pliers, double the end of the wire up, bending it into a "U" shape to bury the end back in the cork. MATERIALS: Fence wire, split ring, and wine bottle cork. TOOLS: Drill and needle nose pliers. SKILLS REQUIRED: Basic shop skills. AUTHOR: Labbe, A. TITLE: Quest Extra: Doing It Yourself. JOURNAL: Quest.
