Home Built Periscope
My home-built ?periscope' mirror lets you see at a glance if grain is blowing out the back of the truck or if your tarp comes off or becomes untied. ft consists of a metal box about the size of a 2-quart milk carton mounted on an adjustable bracket made from flat iron at the front edge of the truck cab roof. A wing nut holds the box in position so you can easily adjust the angle as neccessary. I put a piece of clear glass in the box on the side facing the driver and a mirror in each of the two corners so you can see back over the top of the truck box. The mirrors are held in place by silicone. (Garry Donahue, Box 1732, Biggar, Sask. S0K 0M0 Canada ph 306 948-2085)
