From casual games I've learned that...
Yup same here, my wife gets mad at me when I constantly break the Zipper pull on my coats, I tell not to worry, I play Casual games and I often run across Purses,Knapsacks, Briefcases,Tents,etc. that have their Zipper Pulls broken and I just need to find a Paper clip or a wire or the missing ZP and voila, it is fixed.

Of course you can't open a rickety old door with a Crowbar, silly you, you need to find some Oil first to oil the Rusty Hinges.
And I'm with you on the "Hacksaw", good Lord how I found myself sweating bullets trying to saw one thin metal bar let alone several prison bars in no time. I want one too.
