Newspaper alert"I've tested it in all types of weather and it works great to save wasted steps to and from rural newspaper delivery tubes," says Rodney Armstrong, Grafton, Ohio about the signal device he developed and patented that lets him know when the paper's delivered.
The spring-activated, L-shaped "Newspaper Alert" clips to the upper lip of the delivery tube. No holes to drill.
Before the paper is delivered, the lower flap of the device blocks the front of the tube. When the paper is put into the tube, it forces the lower flap inward which raises the red alert flap on top of the tube. When you pick up the paper, you simply reset the alert.
