Hook System For Fixing A Flat Truck Tire
"We always set the tire inside a steel cage to protect the operator in case the tire explodes. The cage was built from 1-in. solid steel rods.
"We came up with a portable scaffold that serves as a handy step ladder and folds up like a book for use in tight spaces or for storage. It mounts on four castor wheels so it can be rolled around wherever its needed. The scaffold measures 5 ft. long and 6 ft. high and is 2 1/2 ft. wide when folded all the way out. It folds to a width of only about 1 ft.. The stepladder is formed by hooking three metal steps between the sides. By removing the steps and then grabbing hinged arms at the middle of the scaffold, you can collapse the sides in toward each other. The wheels are equipped with brakes.
"Works great for painting, working on ceiling lights, welding, etc."
