comment How to install this cheap metal curtain rod?
I would expect there to be brackets to hold the ends of the rod, and they hooks are to be used periodically along the length of the rod for extra support in the middle. But that's a guess.

comment Why won't my ice maker shut off?
Most have a little arm that is raised as the ice level increases. Is this working? Check the arm, the switch, and the valve it controls - one may be broken. Or the water line may have a leak in it.

comment How can I electrically test an RJ45 plug?
if your ethernet jack is sparking, I'd report it to your RA or maintenance. If they don't want to investigate, tell them you're calling the fire marshal.

comment What alternate ways are there to get into a garage when you don't have the opener?
I don't think the lock is the issue - they need to disengage the opener mechanism to manually open the door, which you can't do if you're locked out

comment What alternate ways are there to get into a garage when you don't have the opener?
You might call a local garage door installer and ask for suggestions. But essentially you need to get into a locked building with no doors or windows - you either have to break something or cut a hole in something.

If the wire is under tension, over time the insulation will wear, creating a hazard.

comment How can I make use of this non-standard network cabinet in my garage?
Have you considered just ripping it out of the wall and putting something standard sized in it's place? And that's not a patch panel, it's an equipment/network cabinet.

comment How to repair this metal corner siding?
he means slide the top edge of each cap under the lip of the row of siding/cap above it. This way each cap will overlap the one below it, the same way each row of siding does.

comment What's a nifty way to restrict my dog run without re-installing it?
is the line nylon/rope, or a cable? Browse around your local hardware megastore and you will probably find a variety of stays and clamps that you can attach to a cable. They may also work with a rope. Another option might be to take a length of PVC or garden hose, slit it to slide over the rope, and use that to create a stop before they reach the tree.
