User diamondchick1 bought an expensive gate with a "cat door" to keep the dog away from the cat's food (and litter box). Unfortunately, the "cat door" was more than big enough for her 40 pound Australian Shepherd to fit through. Peg board + jigsaw + zip ties = no dog in the kitchen!
Singapore's train system was disrupted last week when some claws providing power and support to the third rail detached. The company in charge, SMRT, acted swiftly to fix the problem, by securing the claws with zip ties. Obviously this raised some eyebrows and the company is now under investigation.
