Simple Trailer Backup Guides
“I sometimes have to back a trailer that’s too small to see when it’s directly behind my truck. So I made these backup guides that are easy to use and solve the problem,” says Steve Faber, Tiffin, Ohio.
“I made them from a pair of wood dowels and round magnets that I bought at Harbor Freight for $5 (www.harborfreight.com). They have a tapered hole at the center. I fitted one end of each dowel to the hole, glued it in place, and then screwed into it from the bottom.
“I put pinch-style hose clamps around the base of the dowel to keep it from splitting when I put in the screws and to add strength.
“I carry them in the truck so they’re always ready to use.”
