Chin Technique for Sofa Table Assembly

There are a few handy man jobs Sena lets me do around the house. They tend to be chores like Knock Down Furniture assembly. The most recent job was a small sofa table. You know, usually the companies send you a cheap tool to put things like this together. This time they didn’t enclose a hex head wrench—because they didn’t use hex head screws. The sofa table came with Phillips head screws—but no Phillips head screwdriver. No problem; I have one of those.

In the video I made, I mention the chin technique to use when you’re putting stuff like this together by yourself. You just hold on to the parts with your chin pressing against your shoulder. I don’t have a patent on it yet.

  1. Have used the chin technique many times myself. I recently answered the age old question: “How many psychiatrists does it take to change a license plate?” The answer is one but it took 3 hours so I guess it really did not want to change. I removed 3 of the 4 Phillips head large screws effortlessly. On the 4th – I stripped it and had to use a channel lock and then vice grips. When I went to the dealer they had an electric drill screwdriver that made everything go easier. They also had new corrosion proof screws. Live and learn.
