And it sounds like this. It shouldn't sound like this, but it sounds like this now.
I am going to replace my shaving heads on my Philips shaver. I'm using a Series 3000, but I think this is the same for most Philips shavers. 
If you press this eject button - I'm sure you know this - but this is the bin that collects all of the beard trimmings, and all the shaving goes into there. 
What is not quite obvious is that on some of these, you can actually pull this off to wash it inside, clean all in there, just run water because it's a wet and dry version. 
I've got the official Philips shaving heads replacement set. 
This is for the Series 3000 or 1000. 
First thing we need to do is to twist this centre lock mechanism. 
You just turn it anticlockwise, and that releases the holder. 
These push the blades down into position. It's like a little springiness them. 
But just for demonstration, the three blades sit in a cradle like this. 
They push up and down against your face, but we're going to remove them. You just push them out. 
This is how the blades work inside the grill. 
There's a free running set of blades. 
They cost about $20 or 20 British pounds. Some instructions on the side here. Let's see what's inside the pack. 
You can get fake Philips or, you know, off-brand ones. 
These cost about twice the price of the non-official ones, but I thought I use this every day. I didn't want to skimp on this. 
And the way to fit them is pretty self-explanatory, but I'll show you. 
These ones are slightly different from the ones that came with the shaver. They have these lugs on the side, and they fit into the gaps on the holder on the top. So there is a right way of doing this. 
You kind of drop it in like that, and it stops it from turning around. 
If you don't meet those lugs, the blade is kind of offset, so you want that to be flush. 
So you just turn it around to be that kind of orientation, and you see it drops straight in. 
So the other lugs are here and here. So I will drop the lugs in that way around, just tuck them under the central pole here so those two are flush. 
And then we'll do the third blade. So now we have all three blades in position. I can now fit the springy holder. 
You see it kind of springs like that, and it goes this way up. So you want the turning dial to be facing you with the arrows, and then we're going to line up the gaps with the three prongs here, which means that the springs will sit directly above each blade, and they guide this in those prongs. 
So it should look like that. 
And then crucially, we're going to turn it clockwise, so against where the arrows are pointing, and that locks it into place. So now I can push down, and it's all held in place. 
Wow, it's going to be so good to have my shaver back, not screeching at me. 
You don't need something screeching at you in the morning, do you? 
And then we are good to go. All we need to do now is to push this back into the holder, and the shaver is sounding much healthier. 
I can see bits of beard everywhere in the sunlight. 
The sun's still holding out, so let's see. Let's see if this actually works. 
Oh my goodness.
I am calling this a Dad Delivers success.

Why I CLEAN & REPLACE PHILIPS SHAVER blades!



How do you CLEAN a Philips shaver inside... and how do you change and REPLACE the round shaver blades? I've always used a Philishave electric shavers - currently series 3000, and share how I can take out the rotating blades, take them apart to clean and wash. Plus I show how to fit new Philips replacement rotary blades shaver heads for the 1000, 3000 and 5000 series shavers.

Why I CLEAN and REPLACE PHILIPS SHAVER blades!

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

Hello, welcome back to the channel. It's a gorgeous day today, a gorgeous gate, a gorgeous gate, that's not right. Hello, welcome back to the channel. It's a gorgeous day for doing this. I am going to replace, change my shaving heads on my Philips shaver. It's a Series 3000 filler shave, and it has these heads. And how do you clean a Philips shaver? I'm, I'm going to do the discussing, and we're going to clean out this electric shaver. I'm using a Series 3000, but I think this is the same for most Philips shavers. Can I just say from the outset, this is my dad's shaver headset. He has a Philips shaver too and didn't know how to, how to clean his. I'm not sure many people know that you can actually clean inside the blades because although it has a compartment for capturing the shavings, some people don't realize that you can actually take apart the blades themselves and clean all inside there, clean the gunk out, and clean and remove all the residue. Also, I damaged my shaver, dropped it out the drawer, and it sounds like this. It shouldn't sound like this, but it sounds like this.
Now let me take the blade out, and I'll show you what it should sound like. So much more pleasing. Uh, I think, think the blade got dented. Let me show you. There's a little grill along the top. I don't know if you can see just there, the teeth. There's a tiny dent on the grill, and it means that the blades inside hit it at that point and makes that really horrible noise. So I've got to replace this blade now. The new thing we're trying today is to clean this wet and dry Philips Shaver Series 3000, but also 1000, 5000, and other Philips electric shavers. They're sometimes called filler shaves, aren't they? But I don't think they've used that name in a while. If you press this eject button, I'm sure you know this, but this is the bin that collects all of the beard trimmings, and all the shaving goes into there. What isn't quite obvious is that on some of these, you can actually pull this off to wash it inside, clean all in there, just run water because it's a wet and dry version. Uh, so that comes off here. We'll put that to one side, and I use an old toothbrush. They used to give you those really nice black brushes with the long bristles to get all underneath the motors. If I press the on button, you can see them spinning around. If we go closer, you can see the motors have a little gap underneath them, and you can bend them. So if I get the toothbrush, it's much better with a long-bristled brush. We'll just clean inside, and this is going to get disgusting, I promise you. But there's going to be quite a lot coming out, and I cleaned these blades the other day, and I've got a special set from where my dad, he couldn't actually get into the blades. So if you have trouble with, uh, gripping things, you might want to get someone to do this for you. I'm going to show you how to clean these blades as well as replace them. So I've got the official—let's reach it over—I've got the official Philips shaving heads replacement set. This is for the Series 3000 or 1000. First thing we need to do is to twist this center lock mechanism. You just turn it anticlockwise, and that releases the holder. These push the blades down into position. They're like a little springy in them. Let's give this a little brush and a clean. Like I said, I did this the other week, so it did not look like this. And I'm going to show you what a long-term not cleaned set of blades looks like in a moment. But just for demonstration, the three blades sit in the cradle like this. They push up and down against your face, but we're going to remove them. You just push them out. Now what's really important with this is that you keep each blade with the grill because they have worn down over time, and if you start mixing them up, apparently, that's not a good thing. So we're going to keep this blade with this grill that holds it in place. Let's take all three out, and then we can clean the holder. I'll show you how to replace them in a moment. But you can get the brush in between on the top, and because the thing moves up and down to fit the contours of your face, there are bits of beard in between. So we're going to just run the brush between these holders, and then on the other side, really get the bristles in and give it a good clean. We'll get this ready for the new blades, but let me show you the old blades. This is how the blades work inside the grill. There's a free running—whoa—set of blades. So we got two places to clean here. We put that there. First place is between the blades themselves. So I try to give the overall set of blades a nice brush, get rid of the beard there. And then there's bits of skin and debris that go underneath the blades here, so I just brush up. That should clean them out. And then in the grill, there's more debris here, and this is where dead skin collects around the edges. So I'm just going to go around the sides, and you can see all that skin coming off. Wow, all of this has come from about a fortnight. I do this about every 6 months, but I think you're supposed to do it a lot more frequently than that. And then I'm going to do the same with the other two blades to speed this up. The other thing I'm doing is cleaning the top of the grill as well. So I'm just making sure to get all the dead skin and the beard debris out with the shaving heads. Don't forget to try and keep each blade together with the grill that it belongs with. The sun's come out for this. That's pretty good, isn't it? We might get this done before the thunderstorms arrive.
I have got an extra special treat for you. I'm going to show you what happens if you don't clean them, and it gets to the point where it really stops cutting altogether. So if your Philips shaver has stopped working, this could be what has happened. Look at this. Oh, this is revolting. If you've not done this before, your blades might just look like this. Oh my goodness. Here's a secret that I don't think I've shared on the channel before, but I have never wet shaved. When I was growing up, I had really terrible acne and just started shaving with the electric shaver. Maybe I should wet shave on the channel. That'll be a fun video, but I'm just really happy with the Philips shaver. These rotary blades mean that you can just pull it across the beard in any direction, and I found with other shavers like Braun, where you can only go in one direction, it's actually really irritating and takes five times longer to achieve a clean shave. But with the toothbrush, it's really easy to clean out even the worst gunk from your shaving heads. If you can run it over quickly, you need to clean these bits out 'cause these allow the bits of beard to go through and fall into the hopper that collects the beard. So this is what it looked like before, and now this is how it looks after. That will now start cutting your beard again. Inside the grill, just as a gunk too, we've got dead skin on the side, although it stopped working so thoroughly that I don't think it's collected anything on the side. And we could do the sides. We get some debris collecting on the sides here and the grill on top. Let's open the next one up, see what treats await us. Oh my goodness, this. It's so packed in. Can you see that? It just stopped cutting altogether. All we do is run the toothbrush over, and you can see the sheer amount of beard and dead skin that's collected. It's not that long. I think this is about 6 months' worth. Let's do a third one just for the fun of it. Look, it's just swirled around and solidified. You can hear the chunks of beard and skin falling onto my pad underneath. So just give this a huge brush. I just realized this is a clean with me, isn't it? But for, uh, for dads. There we go. I wish I could teach the kids to do this for me.
Now, how do you fit brand new shaving heads for your Philips shaver? This did look nice and new. It's now covered in beard. They cost about $20 or 20 British pounds. Some instructions on the side here. Let's see what's inside the pack. You can get fake Philips or, you know, off-brand ones. These cost about twice the price of the non-official ones, but I thought I use this every day. I didn't want to skimp on this. By the way, look at how much has come out. That's revolting. Let's open up the new blades, and the way to fit them is pretty self-explanatory, but I'll show you. These ones are slightly different from the ones that came with the shaver. They have these lugs on the side, and they fit into the gaps on the holder on the top. So there is a right way of doing this. You kind of drop it in like that, and it stops it from turning around. If you don't meet those lugs, the blade is kind of offset, so you want that to be flush. So you just turn it around to be that kind of orientation. You see it drops straight in. So the other lugs are here and here. So I will drop the lugs in that way around, just tuck them under the central pole here, so those two are flush. And then we'll do the third blade. I'm not going to mix them up because I want them to get even wear, so I'm really, you know, treating myself. Treat yourself. So now we have all three blades in position. I can now fit the springy holder. See, it kind of springs like that, and it goes this way up. So you want the turning dial to be facing you with the arrows, and then we're going to line up the gaps with the three prongs here, which means that the springs will sit directly above each blade, and they guide this in those prongs. So it should look like that, and then crucially, we're going to turn it clockwise, so against where the arrows are pointing, and that locks it into place. So now we can push down, and it's held in place. Wow, it's going to be so good to have my shaver back, not screeching at me. You don't need something screeching at you in the morning, do you? And then we are good to go. All we need to do now is to push this back into the holder, and the shaver is sounding much healthier. I can see bits of beard everywhere in the sunlight. The sun's still holding out. Let's see, let's see if this actually works. Oh my goodness, yeah. I'm going to be ready for a wedding this afternoon, so that's good.

How to destroy a leather sofa with electric foot rests in 12 minutes!



I had to dismantle my dad's 3-seater leather sofa before he could get his new IKEA Ektorp armchairs built. We couldn't donate this sofa because it's against the law if it doesn't have the safety tag still attached... and we couldn't afford to get it reupholstered: the leather is torn and the seat on one side completely collapsed. So the only way to get it out of the apartment and over to the tip was to take apart the foot rest motors and then destroy the sofa into 3 large parts which can be carried out to the car!

How to destroy a leather sofa with electric foot rests in 12 minutes!



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!
hello welcome back to the channel this is a funny little video about how we destroyed my dad's leather sofa his three seater sofa look you can see the three of us the men of the family working out how on Earth we are going to get this brown leather sofa out of his small apartment or flat as we call it here in the United Kingdom 

we knew we had to pull it out but we had no idea how we were going to get take this apart so the first thing we're doing is is tipping it up on its back and it has adjustable footrests mechanical electric footrest don't worry it's it's unplugged but we had to First somehow work out how to get the electric motors out from the sofa and then figure out how we take the thing apart or get it out of the out of the flat uh 

underneath the fabric oh you can see a nice shot of my uh my my clothing at the back could probably be a bit more uh better uh forgive me thank you for your patience but we're going to somehow work out a way to unbolt the electrical motors that drive the footrests and to do that we need to even find them so here's my sun and I are just trying somehow to locate where the motors are and how they're bolted to the leather Sofa underneath and this is going to be a bit dull but I'm I'm just trying to use my electric screwdriver to to power out the the different screws and we plug it in again just to we had to like move the footrest to different positions just so I could even get to the the screws that held the motors to the sofa my my dad granddad's uh very helpfully diving in with the uh the vacuum cleaner and this took forever 

I think I might speed this up a bit faster because it takes ages just to find out where the the screws were it turns out they were about 6 of them on each uh motor there were two foot rests we're now looking into the sofa on both sides it's so difficult just trying to just trying to find out where where these screws and bolts are so the two of us thought we we do a two prong attack and see if we could get both foot stool Motors out at the same time 

dad's back in with the Hoover it's great work dad and yeah and slowly but surely we start to remove more fabric to expose more by the way it's it was really nice it was really nice family day nice male bonding for the three generations of the mossy family here without a clue oh my God I'm so sorry I'm going to have to blur out the uh I've got to blur out the back of my jeans I've got real Builders bum going on here which was right for the for the toolbox and the the task in hand but you don't you don't need to see this I think this this blurring needs to be quite loud [Music] 

anyway this this took forever so if you've looked up this video to see how to destroy a sofa how to take apart a leather sofa with electrical mechanical foot stools I hope something here helps but uh it was just a painstaking exercise to dismantle it so I'm now unplugging the the motors but I have to plug them in again just to move the foot stool a small amount to be able to expose the bolts and the screw is holding the motor to the wooden frame of the leather sofa and uh it's really difficult it's just so hard I'm using combination of a cross- head screwdriver and I've got a wrench there and some pliers because some of the the bolts have to be held on the other side and I I've managed to get the right hand side loose so I knew we're on to something it was just a couple more screws holding the motors in place that stopping us from actually taking the motors out and then we could start cutting up the sofa but this was a bit of a breakthrough here this was the moment where I knew that I could get the right hand side footstool out so with a bit of help just to remove this one final Bolt 

the whole weight of the entire mechanism was just on one one screw there and I think that's that's now out so now I've gone over to the other side to remove the remaining screws holding the the mechanism in place and with a bit of help from my son to lift up the there like a pump action kind of thing that pushes the footstool out and locks into place we had to move that from time to time oh look at this I found uh my dad's Freedom pass he' lost that about 5 years ago 

he had free travel in London from when he was living in London and was convinced that he'd lost his freedom pass I think I I'll show it to the camera in a minute but uh I found that jam down the side of the sofa so if you take nothing away from this but this tip up your sofa now tip it up now and have a good rout around underneath because there'll be all kinds of gems from the the 5 or 10 years that that you you've had it this sofa is about 10 15 years old and we would have loved to have kept it going but uh to reupholster it would have costed hundreds if not a thousand and no one would take it because it didn't have the the the tag anyway we're tipping the the the sofa up as you can see and we've managed to get the left hand side sofa units out we can carry that outside which which is uh fantastic it was the best part of the day so we found an old lost Freedom

pass oh Dad was choked it was here all the time he was looking everywhere for that so now we are taking apart the the right hand side of the sofa and that can go out out the back door ready to go to the tip because we can take these piece by piece in the car I haven't got a big car so I couldn't get the uh the whole sofa in and that then leaves the carcass oh Dad's having another go with the uh with the vacuum cleaner yeah I'm now thinking what on Earth do I do with the three seats of the Tre seater sofa so we removed that unit and just looking at the fill

this is about five years worth of of just stuff and spillages and a little bit of uh mold that's built up on on the wall there I'll talk about that in a bit here's sofa part two I'm going to somehow try and Destroy what's left of it the camera here we're in for the final push and I've got the jigsaw out it's a corded jigsaw and in my head I'm just thinking if I can make some crucial cuts on the wooden frame of the sofa then I could at least get the thing into three parts and I could get those three parts into the back of the car so it's a combination of Jigsaw and that's just plywood at the back my dad's offering me a hammer as you can see the the sofa is just built of plywood and foam and these these wooden struts so I've tipped It Forward just to get a different angle for the jigsaw to get in and I'm using the handsaw and and uh what else have I got there I didn't take the hammer and I'm just trying to work out where where are the easiest points to cut what's there 

I I pulled out the there switches on the side electrical switches that controlled the the motors I thought that might be useful to keep them with the motors maybe sell them on eBay I don't know is there much of a market for foot rest motors from sofas they're really good and they work really well uh so I've cut out all Electronics put that to one side and then back to removing this part of the sofa and I had an idea here where if I make a couple of cuts I could fold it down and that would help the arm just fold down in into the car so off that goes out the back door and I've got to cut what's left now in half dad's having a much needed uh sandwich break uh very crucially holding it for me uh this is what looking like at the back and uh

this going to cut here and cut all the way down there and then and then I can use the jigsaw or saw to cut through the frame and that will be the three parts we need to get rid of it and I'll take out the electronics here back to the jigsaw and the and the hand saw just get a nice angle on the camera and I'm using the knife that's the other uh piece of equipment I've got it's the knife to remove the fabric making those incisions into the leather of the back of the sofa there and there a lot of Staples in the thing 

I had to avoid the blade hitting the Staples so I'm just using the knife just to cut away any fabric I can and then this jigsaw just goes straight through the plywood and the wooden struts holding it together little bit of work with the hand saw I think that was just to get around the metal Staples that are in in the in the frame and then one final bit of jigsaw to cut this last Strut and that's it I've managed to segment divide this three sea sofa into three I'm pulling out the electronics bit little less carefully this time I don't if you can see the silver buttons there so I'm just trying to find those I don't know why I'm salvaging these it just it was just my favorite part of the sofa I think it' be a shame to let those Motors go to waste so I'll just put those with the footrest Motors and then little bit more cutting with the jigsaw so I can fold down this arm of the armchair for its final Journey to the the council tip uh you got to book in these days which is Fun Since Covid 

and then we've got a last section there so now it's just the clear up uh take everything out to the back door and get things ready for the Ikea Ektorp two armchairs I'm going to just clean the floor this is like 5 years is worth of spills that have gone down over the years and I need to clear a space because the Ikea Ektorp they're they're quite big these armchairs that are coming in I've got another video about these that link is down in the description I'd love you to see it those Ikea armchair builds with a separate foot stool no motorized foot rest unfortunately but time to gather up all the tools one final final clean and uh this place has never been this clean look at this amazing stuff uh 

just do a bit of uh merry Poppins with my uh trousers hanging down and that line against the wall there that is where I guess warm air was hitting the cold wall behind the sofa it's the coldest point in the room and I'm going to use a sterilizing fluid I'm just very carefully sucking up the dust around that back wall there all I'm doing is getting a cloth with Milton sterilizing fluid you know the fluid that you use for uh sterilizing baby bottles let's pull in the the Ikea boxes I'll move the camera and we'll just get the cloth and bleach these walls just do it really carefully you have to dab at the walls and not uh Splash it I don't want to Splash it on the carpets because that really would bleach it but can you see how clean the skirting boards are coming up and that it's on the skirting boards and the walls it's pretty uh revolting stuff here 

I'm trying not to disturb the the mold spores should really be wearing uh uh face guard but uh I'm hoping if I just do it quickly enough and with enough sterilizing fluid it will obliterate the the the lights mold that had grown behind the the sofa this room is just going to be so much more clean and healthy uh despite my poor lack of clothing there hanging out the back thanks for hitting the like or the Subscribe button it really helps me I really appreciate you coming along for the ride and right here is a video where I replaced the leather sofa with two Ikea Ektorp armchairs [Music]

Fantastic Armchair build! IKEA EKTORP assembly and step-by-step with FOOT STOOL!



I'm putting together this IKEA EKTORP ARMCHAIR and FOOT STOOL step by step on camera in this video. If you're looking for assembly instructions, or a first impressions review of the Ektorp armchair and foot stool, this video is just for you! I do some steps wrong which might help you avoid them when you come to build the EKTORP. Good Ikea Luck everybody!

Fantastic Armchair build! IKEA EKTORP assembly and step-by-step with FOOT STOOL!



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

Hello, welcome back to the channel. How do you assemble an IKEA EKTORP armchair like this one, or this one, or even the footstool? How does the IKEA EKTORP arrive when it's delivered, and how do you put the covers on?
Hello, welcome back to the channel. I am going to put together this. It's an IKEA EKTORP armchair. If you wanted to see how to assemble a two-seater or three-seater sofa, sorry, I haven't got you covered with this, but I think they're put together in a similar way, so this might give you an idea of how the EKTORP works when it arrives from IKEA. I'm putting these together for my dad's flat, but first, we've got to clear this area. 
This is what it looked like before. We've got this, uh, I think it's over 10-year-old leather sofa. IKEA, in my country, unfortunately doesn't get rid of the old sofa when it delivers its new stuff to you, so we've had to, uh, get the toolbox out and figure out a way to take this down to bits, down to at least a size where we can get it out of the house and down to the tip. And then it was time to take the jigsaw and the saw together. 
Don't worry, the IKEA EKTORP armchairs are coming up, but this is footage of us, uh, trying to clear the area. Uh, we took, uh, a jigsaw and a handsaw to the frame, and finally, we managed to get it down to some bits where we could get it out of the flat. So now we've got the area clear, and IKEA have been. The IKEA fairy has come to drop its droppings here. This is how the EKTORP armchair actually arrives. We've got two of them, which is why we've got the two boxes, and we've got a box over there for the footstool. So they're actually really small and easy to deliver. The covers arrive separately, and, uh, they weren't able to put it on the same delivery shipment, so they ship these by courier separately. Your situation might vary wherever you are in the world.
We've gone for this fetching blue, but they're really easy to put together. So the first thing I'm going to do is open up this box and take out all the bits inside. It's really easy. It's like three or four really big parts that just bolt together. So I'll take out the sides. These are the two sides of the armchair. It's probably what makes the armchair shape and armchair shape. And we've got a bag of feet, and then this is the base of the armchair. Oh God, right, you do need to have some kind of upper body strength to get it out of the box. Take this out. I think this is the, uh, base cushions. Take that out, and then the other cushion. Sorry, that was the back cushion; this is the base cushion. This is what you're going to be sitting on, hopefully for the next 15-20 years. Get rid of the box over there. The first thing we'll need is the bag of legs, because it's got the bag of bits inside. The first thing we'll need are these two bolts. They have a thread, a long thread, and a short thread, and I think the short thread is the one that goes into the hole here in the base of the arm of the armchair. I'll just put that in here and twist it in. We'll need to do this four times, so it's two bolts on the two arms of the armchair or sofa. Then we use the same bolts with a washer, like this, and we're going to put it on just one side, one corner. So I'm going to do this corner for this arm of the armchair. Whoa, this lighting is really ominous, isn't it? There we go. So then we'll do the same on the other side with the other arm. Now I can open up the armchair so the back kind of hinges back, and I'll just lay that on the floor. All we need to do is line up the bolts at the bottom of the arm and guide them into the holes. Obviously, have that bolt at the back because that bolt will go into the back of the armchair. Then I'll do the same on the other side. I'm out of breath just removing the arm. Just guide the bolts into the holes at the bottom first, and then the bolt at the back should go in. There's quite a generous hole for that bolt at the back to go into. Now we can tip the armchair onto its back, and that will expose the bolts underneath that we're going to bolt into place. What we'll need for this is this bolt turner, what do you call it, a bolt thing, and a nut and a washer. So put the washer and the nut over the bolt at the bottom, and then use the metal screwing device. We'll just turn that and push the bolt into place. I'll do that for all four bolts which are showing at the bottom of the armchair here. I've messed it up there. There's always one instruction I forget. I didn't put the plastic washer onto the bolt on the side of the arm. I'm going to have to now take the arms off, and I'll put the plastic washer onto the side, and we will get the arms back into place. Whoa, there we go. So this is the washer you don't want. This is the washer we're supposed to have. Now we can put the bolts on, the nuts, to hold the bolts in place for the back bolts. And then, where's my bolt thing? I've lost my bolt thing. What's it called? Say in the comments if you know what this is called. I bet it's a really obvious word, isn't it? It's like a wrench for bolts. Let's put this in now. I found this a bit tricky, so you might want to follow the actual instructions which say you're supposed to do the back first. Because if you do the other bolts first, it kind of locks it into place and it doesn't give you enough thread to have the nut bite where you need it to bite. Now, finally, it's the super easy bit. We get to screw these feet, these four legs, onto the base of the armchair. That will bring it up to the right sitting height. They go in really easily. The bolts just go into the four holes. It's super clear. So we just get these feet on, screwed in tightly, and then we can tip it back up and put the cushions on. Yeah, but we are not finished yet. So here is your white armchair. Maybe you want it to look like that. We've got to do the covers now. Oh, by the way, this is the packaging that you'll be left with as you go through your IKEA build. I think there's a kitchen in there somewhere. Now, this bit is really easy to do, even with me with my split fingernail catching the fabric. But the great thing with the IKEA EKTORP sofa and armchair is that the covers are totally removable, and you can wash them really easily. So if you wanted to clean your sofa, it is really easy. All you have to do is unzip them. So here I am packing the back and the base into the zippered pouches. There's lots of big zips. This bit isn't so difficult at all. The covers all come together in one batch in a small box, and they go on just like this. In a moment, we'll be putting together the IKEA EKTORP footstool. And now we're putting on the back cover, the main cover for the EKTORP armchair itself. It's really simple, really straightforward. You just hook one end of the cover over the arm on one side, and then you can pull it across and pull it taut, and then hook it over the other arm of the armchair. There's helpfully a strip of Velcro so that at the base of the armchair, it holds the cover in place. Now, I think you're supposed to iron this before you put it on, but I just couldn't wait, so I've just put it on anyway, and it looks pretty good as it is. But you can iron the covers before they go on. Ours seem to have had the creases fall out. I think that's because we opened up the package a day or two before we've actually put this together. Finally, I get to sit down. The base of the armchair is the wrong way around, so let me show you how that works. There's a zip at the back. Obviously, the zip actually guides which way around this goes. So this is the proper way round. And that's it, we've got an EKTORP armchair in place. Should we, should we, do you want to see the footstool? Should we do the footstool as well? All of the bits that we need for the EKTORP footstool come in one box, so let's unpack it. We've got four kind of side panels that we're going to bolt together, and there's a whole other cushion section, so we'll put that out of the way to start with. And all we need to do with this is the trusty IKEA Allen key job. There are eight bolts, and we're going to screw in the bolts so that these four panels come together to form a box, like a box frame. And I'm putting them in loosely to begin with, just so we can line up all the bolts. It might be a bit difficult doing that if they're locked in already, so I'm just going to keep them nice and loose. I've, uh, learned my lesson from previous IKEA things you put together. I don't want to be undoing these, so we're just going to put them in loosely. And the four panels

come together. The holes line up with the holes in each panel. The bolts go in, and I don't know if you can see, but there is a line of Velcro that goes all the way around. That Velcro helps you line up the panels and put the panels the right way around and have them the correct way around. So if you can keep that Velcro line consistent, I've got them along the bottom there, and then we can finally tighten all the bolts to lock this frame into place for the EKTORP footstool. 
Now we can open up the top cover, and we'll bring that over and put on these four feet. We won't actually see these feet. This is the lid, and this is what we'll put our feet on. So this is the underside of the foot part of the footstool, and now this is the top section that goes on top of the footstool. So just flip it over, and then it sits. Those little feet sit on the wooden legs. The cover comes in its own box, and this is a bit strange, isn't it? Oh, it comes in two parts. So there's like a ring part and a footstool part with a zip inside. 
Now, I think the first thing we're supposed to do is iron these, but I'm not going to bother with that 'cause I'm going to live dangerously. So I think the deal is that we put it over the footstool. It's kind of like a big skirt, and then it reminds me of someone I used to go out with. So we put the big skirt around the edge. Let me bring you a bit closer, get the camera. I've tried to get the seam on the actual corners of the footstool, and then this line of Velcro comes in really handy 'cause we would pull this over, make it nice and taut, and that will hold the cover in place. Again, these are removable, so we'll be able to wash these if we knock a glass of wine over them or something. We'll do this all the way around. 
Next, we'll do the footstool part. So I'm going to put this on its side, and then we're going to open the zip. And again, you can iron this first. Don't iron this gray bit because it will melt, and there's a no ironing sticker just to show you in case you forget. And it has, it looks like, two zips. Yeah, two zips. So we'll put the corners over and make sure that this kind of beading is around the edge. Make sure that's nice and tight at the top there, and then we'll just pull it over. Oh no, that's not the right way to do it. The right way to do it is to do the corner first, the corner that doesn't have any zips, 'cause you won't be able to squeeze it in otherwise. And now we can flip it over, and you can see it really easily goes in now. Now you do it the right way around. Yeah, and there is a right way to do it, so you have to do it in a particular order. There we go. Wow, it's looking really, really sharp, isn't it? Oh, and look, so there's special holes there, special ringlets. So I put the feet on too early. Let me get you closer, and you can see my mistake. And now these ringlets should line up with the holes for the feet. It might be a bit of a stretch. I think the hole's back here, so if I—I'm doing this with one hand—if I force it over, you can just about get it to bite in. So we'll flip it over now, and this can just sit on top. 
Time to try it out. And yes, it works! This is how it looks. It feels super comfortable, and the footstool really is at the same height as the seat on the armchair, which is golden.

How to CHANGE Flymo Mower BLADE and lower it with spacers... step-by-step guide



BUY a FLYMO BOLT WRENCH HERE!  (commissions earned!)

Buy WD-40 here!

How do you change the cutting blade of a Flymo Mower? Or fit the spacers and lower the cutting blade? I show you step-by-step how to remove the blade on a Flymo Hovervac (or Simpliglide OR turbolite) and install spacers to decrease the height of the blade for a shorter grass cut.

How to CHANGE Flymo Mower BLADE and lower it with spacers... step-by-step guide



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

Oh damn it. Hello, welcome back to the channel. It's that time of year. Got some nice lens flare from the sun in the background. It's time to get these out, the mowers. I say plural, that one doesn't work. So this video is how to change the blade on a Flymo Hovervac 270, or 250, or 260. 
Let's have a look underneath.
I'm changing the blade. You're probably doing this as well to fit spacers, so if you want the blade to be lower to the ground, lower to the grass, get the grass shorter, you need to fit these spacers. And you can choose how many you want to fit. I'm going to go for all three because I want a buzz cut. I found, I don't know if you found this with your Flymo Hovervac, but I found our one just feels a bit underpowered. Maybe it's not underpowered, maybe it's just that the blade needs to be closer to the grass. So that's what we're doing in this video. It's just a quick video to show how I'm doing it, and hopefully that might help you. That's the new thing we're trying today.
So you will need these spacers and this blade tool. It's much easier to do this earlier on in your ownership of the Flymo. I had some comments on the last video I made, a video for how to change the blade on the Simpliglide 330, and some of the comments said that they just could not budge this bolt here. This is how we're going to do it. I'm going to see if this one works because I've only had this a month and I've used it once, of course. But we're going to see if it does budge, and if it doesn't, I'll suggest some things to try and get it moving. If you haven't got one of these tools, it's not essential. So I don't know if you can see it in the sun. I'll put a link down in the description for getting this on Amazon or online, so hopefully that will sort you out and probably some spacers as well. 
So what we're going to do is line up the bolt. It's like a wrench, a plastic wrench. I can't do it one-handed. Let's put the camera down over here, and I just—whoa—just turn it around so you can see. And if we go in close, I'm going to line up this hexagon—is it hexagon? Tell me in the comments—and we're just going to turn it anticlockwise. I'm going to hold the plastic thing that spins around above the blade. I'm just going to try and turn it. Obviously, you've got to keep your knuckles clear as the blade—wow, this is not easy. That is not budging at all. Wow, to everyone who left a comment, thank you. I absolutely feel your pain. It'll be much easier to do this soon after you bought it, I guess. I don't know what this mark is. It looks like a pen, some kind of quality control pen mark. And I'm going to try and get as much turning motion up here. No, that is not turning. I got this for my birthday, a huge can of WD-40. I'm going to try and use this to try and loosen it, so I'm going to stick it down the side. This is just my suggestion. This isn't what you're supposed to do. And I'm going to see if that will help work its way down into the bolt. It's probably a bit much—oh damn it, I actually cut my finger on this sharp, uh, turning spinny plastic disc, not the blade. So now it's nice and greasy as well as, uh, not budging. So be careful if you do use some kind of lubricants. Obviously, this is going to slip off more easily now. It's like this isn't thick enough. Okay, as you saw on the screen there, now I put these on. Um, I've also, I've got my old Simpliglide turning key because, I don't know, it just feels just a tiny bit more solid and stronger. So that doesn't help you if you haven't got one, but let's try this. I'm going to hold the disc here away from the blade and see if I can get this open. Get my fingers away from the blade. If it slips, I don't want my hand to go over here. Ah, there we go, finally. So the technique, maybe the WD-40 helped, but because it's like a lever action, if you could put all your strength on the end of the turning key, that gives it maximum force or torque to turn the bolt. And it is just a brute strength thing. Uh, so sorry if you can't get yours budged. Maybe some of this might help. Something that someone else left a comment to say that they got to this stage and they found that the bolt was just turning and turning. Let's see what happens here. So you turn it anticlockwise, and they said they got so far and they couldn't pull it. It just kind of kept turning. So I'll show you what the bolt looks like when this comes out. Alright, so the bolt, I don't know if you can see, if it's just turning. The screw does go all the way up to the bolt at the end, so you do need to keep turning and turning and turning for it to go all the way out for me. Now we can take the blade off, and helpfully it's got a little inscription. I don't know if you can see this. It says "this side to grass" on one side. So obviously this is the side that we'll need to see when we put it back on. Now we can get the spacers, and they look like little Connect 4 things. You can stack them up because they have sticky out things and recessed buttons. I put them together. The buttons should match the holes. You just keep turning them till they lock together like that. I'm going to put all three on because I want my buzz cut for my lawn. There we go. So all three are pressed together, and there are dots and holes. Let's bring the camera over. There are the same dots and holes on the motor here, and reassuringly this comes off as well. Let me show you underneath. That's all that's underneath. Grass in there, let's take that out. So obviously it's this way up. Oh, I don't want it to fall apart. Doing this with one hand, holding the camera. Now we can get the stack of spacers and slot the dots onto the recessed button holes like that. Oh, that's really quite, quite proud there, isn't it? And then we put the blade back on. So I get the side that says "this side to grass" here. They lock onto these notches here, like that. There we go. And then I get the bolt, and it's got—oh, I got to do this one-handed—there we go. Now I can turn the bolt as far as possible. Make sure the spacers are this side of the blade, not on top, because this is what now pushes the blade closer to the grass or closer to the ground. Gloves back on. We can tighten it up with the bolt. So I hope this works for you with the supplied bolt turner. Turn this around as tightly as possible. I should have probably put some WD-40 on the bolt for next time, but hopefully there won't be a next time. I think, I think that's it. So time now to test it on the grass.
If you have the Flymo Hovervac 250, 260, or 270, look at this. You absolutely must fit the spacers. It's so much better now that the blade is closer to the ground. Before, it just felt really, like I said, underpowered. But with a lower blade, it gets through the grass so much more tightly, and it's really lifting up lots of grass, which is amazing. And if you're worried that it's going to maybe hit some paving stones, here's my test here. You can see the Flymo Hovervac just glides over these stones, and it—it just—the biggest fear, isn't it, that the blade, a lower blade, might hit obstructions on the ground. But for me, I'm finding that the hover works, and it just, it just floats over them. So this is really good news. Look, look, look, just look at this. Just went over this stone without, without a beat. It just hovered over it, and that was right in the grass. I can even lift the mower on its side and run it along the wooden runner that runs along the ground down by the side of the hut. And that blade is going really up against the wood without hitting it or without being obstructed by it. It's a really close cut without anything bad happening. I was a little worried when I first bought the Hovervac that I'd made a terrible mistake because compared to the Simpliglide 330, the Hovervac just felt like it wasn't cutting any grass. I thought maybe it was the smaller blade or maybe the smaller motor, but these spacers, that's the thing that makes the difference. So I need to now put something in my review on the Hovervac—there's a link to that in the description—just to say that you need to lower the blade to get the most out of this Flymo mower. 
What I really like about the Flymo Hovervac 270 is that it feels to me just that bit lighter than the Simpliglide, so it's a lot easier for me to throw it around the garden and to swing it around the grass and to hover. I think the Turbolite is even lighter than this one, and I really want to try that out. But for now, the Hovervac seems to be doing the job, especially now that I've moved that blade down. I am calling this a Dad Delivers success. Thank you for saying hi in the comments or hitting the thumbs-up or the subscribe button. It really helps me to keep this channel going, so thank you.

How I CLEAN my USB C port: EASY remove fluff from USB-C socket on mobile phone...



How do you SAFELY clean a USB C port... or remove debris, fluff or rice from any USB or 3.5mm headphone socket of a mobile phone or laptop? I share the best way for me to clean out a USB port and 3.5mm jack of our Samsung mobile phones.

How I CLEAN my USB C port: EASY remove fluff from USB-C socket on mobile phone...



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

Hello, welcome back to the Happy Hut.
Do you have a filthy phone? 
Is your phone jack, your USB-C socket, your port - is it gunked up? Have you got something in there? 
I think I might have something that might be able to help you. 
You are seeing footage of my method for getting filth and fluff - pocket fluff - or removing anything from any USB-C port.
As you know, you don't really want to put anything metal in here, and if you have something really thin, it might snap and just leave an even worse blockage inside your USB-C port.
Because the thing I'm helping your family with is how to clean a USB-C port!
Now, as a dad, I'm - for some reason - responsible for all the phones in the family, which means, by the way, fixing their screens. 
There's a video down in the description for sorting that out. 
But from time to time, you can get something caught in the USB-C port; maybe it's fluff from your pocket, or maybe you've tried to dry your phone out - which is a whole other video subject - but maybe you've used rice to clean it out, and a tiny fragment of rice might have got into your USB-C port.
What I use to clean my USB-C ports are these: they are regular straws, they're paper straws, but because of how they're coated, I've got another camera down here - this might be easier to see - they're paper, but they are really super stiff. They're treated with something. So, I'm hoping to use this, and all I do is - just get my scissors. 
We want to make like a really super sharp point, so I'm going to cut this in half, lengthways. 
It might take a couple of cuts to get right.
There we go, and then we flatten this out. 
So, I might make this a bit sharper, so I'll cut it again, lengthwise, so it's almost like a flat pick, like a toothpick there. And this is really quite stiff. 
You can use plastic straws, but there's something about the paper ones where they just kind of have more stuff stick to them.
So, here's my filthy USB-C port. 
I'm going to dive in, and it might take me a few tries; it's kind of hooking fibres and dust out. 
So, if I take my lovely wife's phone - my lovely wife's not-so-lovely phone - and look, I mean, look how my family treat their phones.
How come mine hasn't broken once, and yet, every member of the family has smashed theirs?
Anyway, that's for another video. 
So, I'm going to dive in with this and use it like a hook. 
You can use plastic straws, but I find the paper straws are kind of - they're a bit rougher, so they kind of pick up dirt a bit more easily.
Look, you can see some dirt there, and you can kind of give it a rub on the side that makes connection with the inside of the USB-C jack. 
That's looking quite clean, isn't it?
I mean, look, it's a bit of dirt coming out. 
Let me try my daughter's phone.
Or I think I can see bits in there. 
Here we go, and you might need to do this more than once. 
Oh, there you go. Look at that. You see that filth? This is like a "clean with me" video, isn't it? 
Cleaning my family's phone jacks and ports.
So, this will help the connection. 
Look at that! Look! And I'm thinking, if you're looking up how to clean a USB-C port, your ports might be a bit more filthy.
I keep my phone in my pocket, and it just picks up so much lint, and - oh, look at that! Look at that! It picks up so much lint and basically filth, pocket filth.
I'm going to make another one now, probably use the other end.
I don't know how we ended up with so many Juice Box straws; we just did.
How are my kids drinking their juice boxes? 
They just slam them into their mouths, 'cause the straw just gets in the way - too much time. 
There we go, that's nice.
It's really good for lifting out grains of rice if you've done that thing of drying out your phone, and you've got a tiny bit of rice in your port. This might hook it out.
You can also use this to clean out the 3.5 mm jack if you're lucky enough to have one.
I really miss mine on my Samsung. 
Just twirl it around.
I am calling this the "dad delivers success!" 
I hope this helps.
Let me know in the comments if this does work for you, and thank you for hitting the thumbs up or the Subscribe button. It really helps me to keep this channel going and pay for some more phones as well.

Amazing Fridge Freezer American Style at SAMSUNG EXPERIENCE KX Kings Cross RS6HA8891SL



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!
Hello if you're looking for American style fridge freezers you know how much of a pain it is going out to actually see them. 
We need to see these things in real life before deciding what to look out for let alone which fridge to buy. 
We are looking for a double width fridge freezer so I've been filming every single one we've seen and putting them in this playlist here. 
I even reached out to Samsung's PR to see if they'd lend us a fridge for us to show you! 
That request didn't go down very well but - they said - but Neil, have you seen our Samsung Experience? 
I hadn't and it turns out there's this brand new Samsung Experience KX in King's Cross in London. 
It's sort of like a Samsung theme park which has three American style fridge freezers - all in kitchen settings with other Samsung products sprinkled around. 
So in this video we are looking at the Samsung family Hub RS6HA8891SL American style fridge freezer with smart things: a live video screen on the door in aluminium. 
Or is it aluminum. 
Here's how the fridge looks like inside. 
So inside the Samsung Experience... here we go. 
Hang on, I'll just put my bag down... 
I... I will put the model on screen now and obviously there's a... there's a camera inside the fridge for this screen. 
It's got a water dispenser uh... so it's got the... the handles on the side. 
As you know, fans will know that I prefer having a handle that you can hold, but I guess this makes it more Sleek. 
Let's go freezer first: and there's the... the water dispenser section which... and crushed ice... which I'm... I'm not a huge fan of because it takes up so much space in the freezer section uh... 
I'd prefer to have extra shelves but what's lovely about the Samsung fridges is that their shelves are really deep. 
There's only one shelf there and then there's a little shelf down here. 
And then we've got these bins at the bottom um you have to close that one before the top one opens. 
Also it's um prevented by the door, you have to open the door all the way to uh to open those fully. 
But really nice five shelves there one two three four shelves and two bins. 
But then... there... the I'll save the screen for a moment... in a moment.
What I love about the fridge interior is that it has the metal back um... it just looks nice. 
I don't know if it functions differently and we've got one two three four shelves uh... and I believe this is special, I can't remember 
I'll put it on screen now. 
There's a word for this tray that can hold bottles as as well as be a shelf. 
And then we've got fruit and veg storage. 
I'm saving the best bit for in a moment but we've got five shelves. 
So four big ones and one little one at the bottom. 
And these these shelves look smaller than the regular... than the other Samsung models um yeah... that's a bit small for me. 
And then there's a camera there for the... the what's on the inside. 
And a speaker I can see food getting in that cuz we got food all the way up our fridge. 
I can see that speaker getting damaged. 
God I can see this... this screen getting damaged as well in our house. 
I don't know how our fridge got dented but it has and this shows what's inside. 
Takes a snapshot. 
So if I take the drink, what happens if I take the drink? 
It takes a while to update it's not a video feed it's a snapshot. 
Maybe this is just a demo thing oh no there there we go, it's updated!
I don't know what food list is... oh look... is that automatic I'll put that on screen if it's automatic. 
And you can add things.
[Music] 
That's good, it's got a little inventory and if I put that on home and we've got the smartthings home. 
And then I love this, it's got fridge manager. 
Oh look you can move... move the window around.
[Music]
That shows inside the fridge, so it's 26° in here it's quite warm. 
30% humidity. 
Making Ice is on. 
Water filter is clean. 
And then you can set the temperatures here. 
Oh look at that so I can make it 2° and hit save.
[Music] 
I can reduce this to - 18°?
[Music] 
No. 
Wow and it syncs up with your phone through the smartthings app.
[Music]
This is this is what it looks like.
[Music] 
And there's a thing over here: it's linked up to ring so if I click on the ring doorbell.
[Music]
I can hit view oh go back. 
I don't know what it did there... oh oh well you got a little snapshot of who was at the the front doorbell. 
Which is Handy if it's you know, Ocado or a Tesco delivering. You can holler them in from the fridge. 
Got a lovely display here. 
You get a much better idea of what it looks like in a home. 
Looks really nice. 
Lovely logo in the corner. 
Let me give you uh... open both shelves so you can see... see inside. 
[Music]
Yeah so look first impressions is: I... I still think the drinks dispenser would eat up space for the freezer storage and also our kids would feed the dog by just pushing it there. 
I could see that not ending well um... 
The shelves feel a bit small for me but it does have one big shelf down here, so I could get my big fat six pint bottles of milk in there. 
And yeah... this is this happens with most most fridges, let alone the Samsung ones... that the fruit and veg is blocked by the door. 
You have to open the door all the way to get all the way into the baskets. 
That's not... that's not a biggie. 
It's just something to bear in mind. 
[Music] 
And I hear that there's a special digital inverter compressor which is guaranteed for 20 years um... 
I mean I don't know in practice how you'd get it fixed if something went wrong. 
And obviously with this, I could just see this screen getting cracked. 
You know my family... we've got four phones in the family and three phones screens are cracked at the moment which is why I was here in King's cross to see if I get screen repair... 
oh wonder if they do that here I I'll check if they do that here um...
But yeah... 
That is the Samsung RS6HA8891SL SpaceMax.

BEST FLYMO on AMAZON? Why Hover Vac 270 is perfect for lighter mowing!

[Music] 
Hello, welcome back to the channel. This is the Flymo hover vac 270 in action. Yes, it's time to do the garden, it's time to do the lawn, but which Flymo lawn mower do you go for on Amazon? 
Do you get the bigger Flymo simpliGlide 300 or 330, or this Flymo hover vac 270 from Amazon? 
This is future me with the hover vac in action in our garden, and this is what it looks like when it arrives from Amazon. 
The new thing I'm trying to make your family happy is picking the best Flymo lawn mower on Amazon. 
This is a first impressions unboxing review of the Flymo hover vac, and this is me mowing the garden in future happier times. 
So let's open this thing up! And it's, um, I can carry this. I'm not the strongest person in the world. 
Let's pull this out of the box. 
You've got the... the handles and then obviously the main unit. 
When it comes out of the box, if you lift this lid... inside, we've got some crucial bits and pieces. 
There's the handle for removing the blade and some spacers and the nuts to put the handles onto the Flymo Hovervac. 
Now this is a constant bugbear, Flymo, if you're watching this... come on! 
Can you make the instructions just a bit bigger? 
Think of your demographic! 
The first thing we'll need to do is to get the handles on. I'm doing this for the first time. I did put together the Flymo simpliglide which was quite straightforward so first we'll put this bar on and I'll just squeeze it so they fit in the sides here... like this. 
And then we'll get these plastic bolt things, just put that through. I can't do this with one hand so I've just pushed the bolt through the two holes there and then to lock it we'll push it through the final hole on this side. 
You have to really give it a squeeze to get it to click to lock like that. 
I'll show you a bit more clearly on this side.
So you put the bar in between the two bits of plastic there, get the plastic bolt and we'll push that through the... the holes. 
And then let me get the camera closer. 
Then we want to squeeze this bolt all the way through till it clicks. 
And I'm doing this with one hand so you will need two hands to do this, and you got to go all the way till that clicks otherwise it will fly out while you're mowing. 
There you go, it's more of a clunk so now this is in place and it means that to... it stays in this position which is good because the arm stays up. 
And then if you want to hang it up you can squeeze them together and it folds back so you can hang it flush against the wall, just by squeezing the bars there. 
Let's put the... the handlebar on top. 
Now should we keep the camera here? 
Let's keep the camera here. 
Oh, lost all my bits! 
I've got to get this done before we've got a storm coming in, of course, because I'm trying to do something in the garden so I've got to try and do this before... before it starts raining. 
If we get the handlebar I think it's saying I've got to do this? 
Maybe it's to kind of take the slack you know so it doesn't put a strain on the on the cable there. 
We've got the side nuts and bolts here so I'll unscrew this. 
When we put the handle up we want the button to be on the... on the top side, so it's this way up and then you hold the bar onto the side like this and then feed the... the nuts through and it goes inside out, so if you can see there's like a square uh end to the bolt there to stop it spinning around. 
And it says that the washer should go on the orange bolt side - the orange turning handle thing, so I'm going to feed the bolt through on the inside so that it locks there. And then we can put the handle on and feed the bolts through. 
And then the washer. 
And then the orange turny thing. 
Hope I'm not getting too technical for you! 
I won't put it on super tight uh because we got to do the other side - so the same deal here.  
Take the washer off, feed the bolts through, and make sure that the... the square part of the bolt locks into the square part of the hole.
And then we'll put the washer on and then the orange locking nut. 
There we go so we can tighten both sides now. 
I've had these things fly off and then get lost in my long lawn! 
Almost as karma for not mowing the lawn enough so I'm going to I'm going to do these quite tight because I don't want it flying off. 
And you get a very generous cable, I believe it's 10m on the hover vac 270. 
Oh when by the way the 270 refers to the... the blade the size of the blade in millimetres. 
So this is... woah! This is 27 CM. I went for 2 cm bigger than the hover vac 250 uh just to get me a little bit extra cutting width. 
And this is the... the tool for removing the blade. 
And you can use this to fit these spacers so that you can adjust the... the Cutting length.  
So if you want shorter grass, if you put these on it will lower the blade closer to the... to the ground. 
I just wanted to get the mower out before it rains! 
Uh Casper's uh an advanced party getting the lawn ready for me. 
I wonder if he's left me any presents on there? 
Casper no! No digging! 
Good boy. 
[Music] 
All we have left to do now is to fit the cable holder, and this is to hold the... the cable that runs from the start stop button down to the... the motor. 
You clip this to the handle or the arm and then you can just clip the cable on that keeps it nice and tidy. 
I've always thought with the distinctive orange and the... the really nice design... 
Oh look where I've mashed it on the table. 
It's like... it's like the Apple isn't it? It's like the Mac of lawn mowers! 
You have to take it as it comes. 
I thought the extra 2cm on the blade would help uh this is over a kilogram heavier than the Flymo Hover Vac 250 though. 
So those extra 2cm on the blade uh has put the weight up to 8.2 kg. 
And it's really easy to carry with one hand. 
For me it's much lighter than the Flymo simpliglide 300 or simpliglide 330. 
It has a 1400 Watt motor, a 27cm cutting width and the cutting height is adjustable. So out of the box it's about 3cm and it goes down to 11mm cutting height if you use the 3 spacers which are provided.
The grass box stores 15 litres. 
I remember on previous hover vacs I just took this off! 
It got really annoying having to empty it but uh it... it does store 15L of grass cuttings. 
As I mentioned there's 10m power cable and if you've not used a Flymo before it floats on a cushion of air, the spinning blade kind of um elevates it and makes it sort of hover above the... the grass so it makes it really highly manoeuvrable around the garden. 
Let me read you some of the features from the box while we're seeing me actually do some lawn mowing. 
The Flymo hover vac 270 is a lightweight grass collecting electric hover lawn mower. 
It's small and agile with a metal blade perfect for small lawns. 
This was a concern of mine because the previous hover vac I had had two plastic blades that you could clip on and it meant that if you hit a stone they'd fly off and you just clip them back on. 
I was worried especially with the kids having a metal blade. 
I had to use that with the Simpliglide over there - it's my dead Flymo Simpliglide. 
The metal blade is good because it... it really does um get through the long grass so I feel good about having that now. 
There's a nice wheel at the back to help you uh move it around. 
Let me show you the cutting box. 
Wow it's really windy! 
I think I think this storm is coming in! 
There's the grass box and when it's full of grass you just lift it up there's like a... a lip that clips on there and you can just go and empty it. 
And then to put it back you just put the clips in here so that it lies flush again. 
And then you can close the lid. 
Let's take it on its maiden voyage and I'll show you how... how it works so I've got it plugged in. And then you press the middle button and you have to do that while you're gripping the handle here, so here we go for the very first very first hover vac maiden voyage press the button and here we go!
[Music] 
It is so easy to... to use and it's really light. 
It's probably the lightest Flymo I've ever had and I've gone through about four of these and it's just gliding over the garden. 
You can see I'm getting it over the paving stones really easily. 
The blade doesn't even come close to making contact with the stepping stones so you can get this over some hard patio if you've got grass coming through your patio. 
You can run this over stones really easily, the hover is really good for it. 
Let me show you... it's starting some rain of course! 
Uh just quickly I'll show you what it's like getting it around our patch around the... the washing line. 
This is really easy to throw around a garden. 
But if you want something a bit more powerful or if your garden is a bit larger I would probably go for the Flymo Simpliglide 300 or Simpliglide 330 but be aware that that mower is quite a bit more heavy and it takes a bit more strength to... to put around the garden. 
So if you're older or... or maybe you don't have quite a good upper body strength you'd probably want to go for the Hover Vac rather than the Simpliglide. 
Casper out! out! out!
Got to do this first! 
Our garden is... is really challenging because of all the holes that Casper has kindly dug. 
His gardening uh experience means that it's like... it's like mowing the craters on the moon or after a bad day at The Somme. 
But the good thing with the Flymo is that it kind of glides over all of that. 
It's starting to rain now. I’ll call it a day. 
I am calling this Dad delivers success!

EASY! How to install IKEA HOPPVALS blind... Hoppvals cellular blinds instructions



How do you put up an IKEA HOPPVALS blind? I've put up about 8 Hoppvals and finally sharing how I'm replacing another one of these cellular blind installation! Sharing how I install my next IKEA Hoppvals blind in the Hut with step by step instructions...

EASY BLINDS! How I install IKEA HOPPVALS blind!



TRANSCRIPT: (CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE)

THIS IS THE TRANSCRIPT - CLICK PLAY ON THE VIDEO ABOVE!

Hello, welcome back to the Happy Hut, and we're going to fix this today. 
Have you or are you thinking of getting the Ikea hoppvals cellular blind? 
It looks like this on the Ikea website and in real life, it looks like this. 
Let me get the camera. 
So it's really clever. It's um, usually looks better than this, but it's got like these cellular um, things that contract. 
It's like a fabric blind that kind of concertinas up when you open it, and there's a mechanism in here so you can pull it up and pull it down. 
So going down's not a problem with this one, but as you can see when I try to lift it up, it gets a bit jammed. So I've bought a new one. 
I've been using this daily for about 2 years now, and I've gone through a few of these. 
They are good, they're really good, but they do have a really finite life. So I'm going to show you how to put up an Ikea hoppvals cellular blind. It is really easy, so hopefully you can follow along step by step. 
Now I'm going to take this old one down, and I can show you how to do that as well. So the catches that we're going to fit, there's one here and one on the other side here, and they have buttons on them. 
So if you press the... press the button in, it releases a catch. This is really difficult to do with one hand. 
Let me put the tripod on. All we need to do is to push this catch in, and then you can rock it off the bracket, kind of push it off the lip at the back. 
I can do this on the other side as well, push the button in, and then it has enough space to come off the metal bracket. 
The problem with the Hoppvals, I absolutely love it, but over time there's like a string and pulley mechanism in here, and over time the string wears and there's like a... a coating for the string - wears down and that gets caught up in the in the pulley system. 
So it works like a dream, and I'll show you. Look here's some uh, footage of future me opening and closing the Hoppvals blind from Ikea like nobody's business. 
But this old one that's been going for a few years, the cord is all jammed up in the mechanism here, so it's time, it's time to move on and thank it for its service. 
I have got a brand new Hoppvals on the desk here. 
Let's open it up. Comes in some uh, different colours. I've gone for white to try and keep the inside of the happy Hut Bright. 
Oh, look fantastic! 
Look, they've completely changed it. 
So well, this this is really good news. 
So this I... I had... I haven't even put this up yet. I... and I endorse this blind. 
Thank you Ikea because instead of you saw the old mechanism, it's now been replaced by a really large spring. 
Oh, that's fantastic. 
And the cord is much thicker, so hopefully that will last longer and it goes over the four pulleys over here. 
So when blind goes up and blind goes down, I can't do this one-handed. 
So when the blind goes up and blind goes down, let's see what happens to this pulley. 
Can you see it? It pulls it along here, and it's counterbalanced by the the spring. So it pulls down really evenly, and then when I push it up, the spring takes up that slack. 
Oh, this is going to be really good. So the only next bit which might be difficult is how to put the brackets up. 
So you get a little box with the brackets - just open them up, and you also get a pull which goes on the end of the of the blind. 
I'll show you how to put that on in a second, but you get these two brackets. So when you push the button, it releases the catch, it makes this gap narrower, and that means you can rock the... the top lip of the blind off the brackets. 
Let's take down these two old brackets, and I can talk you through how to site the brackets, you know where to put the brackets on your wall or ceiling. 
So just take this one out. 
The great thing with Hoppvals blinds is that because they have this thing, they can clip anywhere to the bracket which means we don't have to be too precise with where we choose to put the brackets, just so long as it's anywhere in the middle to to hold it up. 
So I try to put mine sort of near the outside just to take the weight on both sides, and the brackets - they have a couple of holes, a few holes in the top so they could be screwed to the ceiling which is what I've done, or there are a couple of holes on the side there so they could be screwed to a wall if that makes sense. So you've got some options there.
I've chosen to do it from the ceiling, and I've got a nice wood ceiling, so it's really easy to screw them in. 
And I've put them... the width, I've put them apart is just literally anywhere on the inside, so you don't want them too close and in the middle, the further apart then the more... the more weight the more force they can take. 
So let's get the other bracket down now. 
I think you're meant to put two screws in. It's chancing it a bit to just use one, but I've been doing that for about 5 years now, and it seems to have worked which shows how good the system is. 
And the advantage of putting two screws in is that they are they have to be perpendicular, they have to come out straight, it's dead straight you don't want it wonky. 
Let's get the other bracket in there, we go, so now we have, let me show you closer, we have a dead right-angled bracket, one there, and one there, there I could even put another screw in the wall here, this is absolutely not going anywhere, it really works well. 
The brackets are really nice and strong. 
To get the blind onto the brackets, we are going to hook the blind over the back lip of that bracket there, and same on the other side, and then you can just kind of force it, and the spring will snap the button back in. 
Obviously if you push the button in that's even easier, but I only had one hand, so now that's absolutely dead solid. 
And if I hold the camera back, I can now pull the blind down and demonstrate just how smooth this is, it's so good, there's a spring in there now, amazing. 
I'm going to tear off the sticker, well it's left a nice bit of uh, residue there, and now I can use this tag. 
This is where you're really supposed to pull the blind down, I'm going to put it in the middle and I'll hook this at the back, hopefully I can snap it on, let's see if I can snap it on, I think the way to do this is to force it on and get it to snap, it's going to feel like it's breaking, but trying to slide it on really didn't work for me, so let's let's see if I can force it on this way. 
Yeah there you go, you just force it over like that, learn from my mistake. 
And then you can shimmy it around once it's on. 
And then to put the blind back onto the brackets once again, I'll hook it from the back on the brackets, and then I'm just, I'm going to push the buttons this time. 
And that will hold your Hoppvals blind. 
Let me get the old blind, just to say I am calling this a dad delivers success!
