    Ok. Just for the fun of it … The attached instructions came with something I purchased …. and this is EXACTLY what they said as it's a scan of the paper.

    When I first read them, I thought geez, I've got to either be a rocket scientist or someone is geeing me up.

    Have a read … and after you stop shaking your head (and hopefully laughing a bit) …

    See if you can work out what the instructions are instructing me to install:bookworm: :nailbiting: :banghead:

    Needless to say … I did it without the instructions :smug:

    Can't work out what it is but I worry about it having an assembly board that is a kind of cheap and fixed collection mother. :eek:

    You have cameras in my house don't you "Red":wideyed::nailbiting::D

    I have no idea where you came up with that pic but it does have a couple of similarities lol … No chocolates however …..

    ps @Trav. If you could give your logic for any or all of your selections, it may be most enlightening;) ... exept the pole dancing:eek:

    I am not ashamed to admit my wife deals with these sorts of instructions 100 times better than me, haha.

    She would have this assembly sorted in no time, she seems to have a knack for reading Swedish diagrams and instructions translated from Chinese, hahaha.

    LOL ….. Yes its an exploding Coffee Maker … well done Jack:D

    No I lied … that is not correct … but a logical and excellent suggestion given the instructions:eek::D

    For the record ... i have installed the product (today in fact) .... and even though the Instructions make slightly more sense (sense/operative word) after re-reading them post installation,

    I must confess ... the instructions make pretty much bugger all sense at all:eek:

    ps. @Trav. may be a genius;) (see earlier) lol

    VC .... If your wife picks the installed item with one guess, I will run naked around my back yard yelling,

    Wife (mine, not yours:eek:)… come and look at me running naked around the back yard:roflmao:

    My wife's response will be something along the lines of ….. "sorry i'm watching Home and Away"

    Can't blame her really:oldman:

    ps I don't like running around naked, so I offer this response confidently, yet cautiously:chicken::happy:

    if I had to narrow it down to 1 selection as I have read those instructions way too many times it would be the tap mixer

    two hoses, gaskets, media pole, inlet hoses,, water, faucet.........

    I thought it was a dash cam at first, but it seems the instructions are about fitting the hot and cold water inlets through a counter top, so it's likely to be #5 as guessed by @Trav. (Aldi's instruction were typically exacting by contrast.)

    Righto ... You guys are on to it so I will desist from my own amusement:D

    Firstly, well done Trav ..... You are even smarter than I first imagined:);)

    And well done to "Red" "Peter2" and "Knobby" for seeing the light so to speak … and anyone else who may have picked up the subtleties.

    For amusement purposes only, now that we know what the instructions are "instructing" ie. a "tap Mixer" (with a flexible/extendible spout no less:p) … can I suggest that those interested or perhaps bored, may ….

    Re-read the Instructions … and decide whether you would have attempted to follow said instructions, or alternatively gone it alone as I decided to do lol … Bearing in mind the Mixer was installed reasonable quickly and with only a moderate amount of swearing on my part:cool::D

    Cheers all … just a little Monday madness for the hell of it:)

    Not as bad as trying to create an account with IB. That's gotta take the cake.
