Writer's Block: DIY

MacGyver, hero of the tv show with the same name, is known for his resourceful use of ordinary household items to get out of an emergency situation. What's the most ingenious solution you've ever come up with in a pinch?
Actually, it wasn't me, but my Dad. (He liked Mac simply for his resourcefulness!) I noticed that I was missing a small post that keeps my windshield wipers on my car. I mentioned it to Dad, and he came up with this solution: take a dowel that fits in the hole, saw it off to the right length, then hammer it in.

He did this to both wipers about six months ago. Those things are still in there, and the wipers are working as they should. ;>
