Hate it when you're starting to get it on and have to get up & walk across the room to dim the lights?
Impress the geek boy/girl in your life with your clever use of fly fishing line & a binder clip!
I actually came up with the basic design when i was 8 and terrified of turning off the lights before my head was under the blanket (because that's when you're the most vulnerable to monsters). This solved that problem also quite well, proving its usefulness & practicality for all ages.
Step 1: Collect materials
- an installed lightswitch (or, preferred, slide dimmer)
- 4 sewing bobbins (preferably with small diameter cores)
- 4 nails (with heads large enough that the bobbins won't fall off of them)
- a binder clip (optional; for the "non-destructive, non-adhesive" installation style *
- enough thin fly fishing line (preferred) or regular fishing line to complete a full path to your target location and back, plus up & down the walls.
- You can alternatively drill through the light switch/dimmer to attach the line and save your binder clip for other exciting uses.
