    Persuading a non payer

    Fail to pay then claim via the small claims court. The successful outcome results in damaging the credit rating of anyone living at that address the last time I checked. Not the most exciting outcome nor the most dramatic/spectacular but it works for me.

    Errr, what about the Twisted Manchester nails? You know the ones with either the slotted heads or the posher Philips/Posidrive heads? They are very clever and provide a superb fixing.
