“Blocking Board” Keeps Pickup Bed Organized
Kenny Ranta of Excelsior Springs, Mo., recently sent FARM SHOW photos of a simple idea he uses to keep his pickup bed neat and organized.
  “I drive a 2002 Ford pickup that has a plastic liner in the bed with built-in side pockets,” says Ranta. “The pockets were designed for use with a 2 by 6 board to keep big objects from moving forward and backward. However, there’s nothing to keep small items like 5-gal. buckets and gas cans from sliding sideways.
  “So one night this idea came to me. I cut a slot into one end of a short 2 by 10 so I can hook it over the 2 by 6 to form a corner where small items are stored. As the 2 by 10 is slid against the items it gets ‘pinched’ and can’t move. I also cut a round hole in the opposite end of the board that makes it easy to grip the board with gloves.”
