Safety Ladder For Grain Bins
"I hope I never have to use it but if I do, I'm sure it would work," says Robert Calhan, Ottawa, Ill., about his idea for a safety ladder for grain bins.
"Use a chain strong enough to hold a big man and put a secure hook on one end. The chain should be long enough to reach from the top of the bin to the bottom. Put 6-in. squares of plywood with holes in the center along the length of the chain. Put cotter pins through the chain below each piece of plywood to hold them in place.
"Before unloading a bin, just hook the chain to the top of the bin and throw the chain in. It'll find its way to the bottom and be there if needed."
