Van Pulls Garbage Can Down Driveway
I got tired of dragging wheeled garbage cans to the end of my long driveway, so I rigged up a metal bracket for my van's bumper. Four metal prongs stick up to hold the handle of the garbage container.
  To make the bracket, I decided to cut up some 1/2-in. dia. reinforcing rod and welded it together into a rectangular shape. The bracket bolts onto a 6-in. sq. metal plate that bolts onto the bumper. The handle fits inside the bracket and is held in place by sliding a pair of pins forward and inserting cotter pins. When not needed, the bracket can be removed from the plate by removing two other pins. (Ken Voigt, 9208 Pasture Lane, Wausau, Wis. 54403 ph 715 842-8471)
