Step On Boot Remover
The "MuckerJack" boot remover has a 16-in. long, 4 1/2-in. wide polypropyleneand-fiberglass step-on base with a 6 1/2-in. long spring-loaded plate mounted in the middle. Four rubber pads under the base keep it from slipping. The front of the spring-loaded plate is rounded to fit the heel of a boot. You place the heel of the boot to be removed on a serrated surface-grip on the base, step down on the plate with your other foot, and pull your foot out of the boot.
Ault says he got the idea after he had hernia and knee operations 1 1/2 years ago. "Many farmers line the insides of their boots with oil, corn starch, and even baby powder just so they can more easily remove their feet from boots. Some of them even buy boots that are one or two sizes bigger than they need just to make boot removal easier. The MuckerJack lets you remove boots without having to lean over and touch them with your hands or brace yourself against a wall, table, or chair. It eliminates the need to beat your boots on the sidewalk or steps to remove them, reducing wear and lengthening the boots' life. It works with virtually any type of boot, can be easily cleaned, and is built sturdy enough that it should last for years."
Sells for $9.99.
