Can't seem to get away from the office.
About 30 minutes ago, my supervisor SSgt Anonymous had a secure electro lock malfunction and lock him inside his office. The plans and resources guys spent the first 15 minutes of this hilarious debacle searching for a building manager, and alas, no key would free the trapped NCO. After noticing the hinges were exposed on the door, I ran into the backshop and retrieved a mini sledge. Once I returned, used the pin punch tool on my Leatherman MUT to unseat the hinge pins with the mini sledge. Once the punch tool had no more room to offer, I clamped the top of the hinge pins with the pliers and hit the side of the Leatherman with my sledge. (I was scared at first to do this, but I figured if I broke them I could probably convince the unit to get me another). Got all the pins out, he kicked the door down from the inside and was free to roam the halls and sip coffee as usual! The Leatherman MUT took a beating with that sledgehammer and still feels like I just took it out of the box, this thing has performed remarkably since I got it last year. The only major damage ive done to it is blow a chunk out of the plier tip by dropping it into the engine bay of a Humvee. The back end of the tool made contact with ground and the pliers made contact with a hotspot. A fireworks display of sparks almost gave me a heart attack.
