  • Quiz # ?

    I know you guys (and girls) are not happy unless you are challenged by some sort of quiz or riddle, no matter how lame (i.e. river birch roots).

    So, in the interest of plumber harmony and goodwill:
    What is it?

      I'll take a guess....a lift rod for an old toilet tank ball?

        a retaining or cotter pin.
        From the looks of it the spiral side faces up and gravity holds it in place.

        As for what it belongs to...I'm guessing it's something to do with a river birch.

                I'll hold the answer, even if you're right, till the West Coast gets off work.

                  Carls seems right. We've probably all ran into the old type mechanism with something that looks like this. I ran into a sink popup that looked like this also but not exactly the same.

                      Sure looks like an upper lift rod to me.

                        All of you guys might as well give up. I see Mrs. Seat Down is online. She got my last quiz, which if I must say so myself was a tough one, after a couple of hours of pointed cross examination.

                            Dang, you're going to need a roach clip if you plan on using that homemade bidet by your toilet.

                              That's not a fair evaluation Tim. MrsSeatdown lives with Rick. And Rick falls asleep surrounded by old plumbing catalogs with a K-60 for a pillow.
