The Final Few Fasteners For Some Fine Fun

To the few folks who’ve favored us with fine fastener photos, I’d say you’ve featured some fantastic efforts. For sure, fasteners are a far-out challenge, fraught with full-fledged failure. Yet, it’s fair to say four or five of you females and fellows faced the fix and confronted it seeking fame and fortune.

I look forward to phase two of the fun challenges our friend, Rich, has forged for our fine family.

Finally, I’m finished with the tom-foolery. It’s picture time!

Fasteners are holding the signs onto the fallen sign post.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say this lock is a fastener, since it connects two ends of the chain and can be taken apart. (Assuming you’ve got the key.)
If you’ll accept the chain and lock as a fastener, then you’d have to agree that I fastened my bike to a bike rack at the grocery store.
This version of a carabiner helps fasten a trailer to a towing vehicle.
This cotter pin connects the gate of a trailer to the main frame, thereby preventing the gate from falling down. That’s a fastener if I’ve ever seen one.
This latch attaches the door to the body of the mailbox.

I felt like I was on a roll, but that’s all I could come up with for the rest of my ride.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.

    A fine eye for lots of fasteners — even the failed Frontage Road sign. Did the Surly hit it? 😉
    The lock does fasten the chain together, and lots of fasteners on the gas meter too.

    Part 2 should be a breeze for you, drag the Surly into the kitchen and have at it!!
