Before sorting out my roof Alex set to fixing my gas locker. It was about this time last year that my gas locker hinge sheared. It did this because I only ever open the gas locker once every six months to change a gas bottle. Alex tells me that If I keep my centrelines in the gas locker then I will open it more often therefore noticing the problem before it gets to ‘shear’ point.
The original hinge formed by the two vertical straps and the ‘bar’ shape in the middle sitting on some ‘D’ section .
