A Boston Public Works employee appropriates two screwdrivers to remove a street hatch. I am curious as to what the original designer thought might be used to open up such a hatch. Additionally, if new or old screwdrivers are used, and how such use effects durability. Finally, I am curious if this employee was shown this technique, or improvised it.
After removing the cover, he examined the hole for about 4-5 seconds, and then replaced the cover, by stomping it down with his foot.
