The Red Green Wiki

If It Ain't Broke, You're Not Trying is a segment on The Red Green Show hosted by Red Green, in which Red repairs (or attempts to repair) various objects and tools brought in by other Lodge members. As usual, Red's solution to most any repair project is to use duct tape, though there are some cases where the item doesn't actually need fixing at all.

This segment ran between the seventh and thirteenth seasons.
