Yard Trailer Dump Lever Rope Magnetic Holder
Category: Yard trailer
Problem: My yard trailer has a lever on the tongue that allows the bed to be released and the contents dumped. There is a hole in the top of the lever for a line which can be pulled, releasing the lever. However, there doesn’t seem to be any place for the end of that line to go, and it certainly isn’t handy while one is sitting on the garden tractor.
Action: I found a magnet and a piece of line. I tied one end of the line to the magnet and the other to the dump lever, so the line is readily available when the magnet is attached to the front of the bed of the trailer or it is attached to the metal frame of the garden tractor next to my seat.
Result: It works great!
