Simple Trailer Backup Guides

Simple Trailer Backup Guides

 

I sometimes have to back a trailer thats too small to see when its 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 theyre always ready to use.
