Two-Rake Leaf Grabber
“I put 2 leaf rakes together facing each other with a long screw through both handles,” says Carlton. “It works well with leaves, grass clippings or pine straw.”
Once they are attached, the facing rakes work like giant salad tongs, pivoting on the screw. Carlton placed the screw through the handles about 6 to 8 in. above the plastic rake heads. Placing the screw higher would force him to open the rake handles wider to grab material.
The back-saving rakes have proven popular. “I’ve given several away to neighbors,” says Carlton. “One of them told me he wore his out because he used it so much.”
