Nike Introduces New Plumbing Tool?

Though unlikely I know, if you ever find yourself in the middle of nowhere, miles from civilization, and trying to complete a plumbing job only to realize you forgot your hacksaw, just grab the lace from your shoe and cut your pipe with it.  Having to resort to such measures may be a stretch, but I have legitimately been bailed out by my shoelace before when needing to cut PVC without having a hacksaw around.

There is a good chance that your shoe lace will break a time or two per cut, but it will get the job done.  I actually use black twine in the video below only because I was having camera issues and used too many shoelaces cutting pipe in the out-takes.  The moral of this story is not my sketchy videography, it is to let you know that if you are ever in a plumbing situation requiring the need to cut some PVC pipe, string or shoelaces will get you through it.

 

If you are completely unwilling to sacrifice any component of your footwear in order to get the job done, I have provided links to a few tools that store easily under a vehicle seat or in a console.

  1. Those are cool looking sneakers, Jake. While I never personally thought of using the laces to cut anything, I can see how it could be done. I know bakers often using string to cut cake layers because they get a nice even cut, so cutting PVC that way makes sense.

    1. Haha, they are cool, but way out of my price range I am sure. Cutting PVC with string is not ideal, but it can be a useful trick in a pinch. Thanks for reading, I hope that you and your family (and pup) had a great Easter.
