Yard Trailer Tailgate Spacer
Category: Yard trailer
Problem: When I left the back of the trailer in place, it would end up filling with leaves, some water, and debris because it would find its way up against the back of the trailer when it was down all the way.
Action: I decided to put a block of wood underneath the back of the trailer so it did not slide down all the way, allowing water and debris to run out.
Result: It works great!
Additional Thoughts: This spacer could be lashed or connected to some part of the trailer so it was always available.
When idea was conceived: 2/9/11
How much time it took to develop: 15 minutes
How much money it took to develop: None.
Current status: In use
Since it was originally done: I have another modification, which is an alternative method for dealing with this issue.
