Winning Tip: Slip-sliding away

Date:11 January 2013 Tags:, ,

Our sliding driveway gate often gets stuck or even derailed by small stones that fall in its track, and having to clear it at 7 am, when you’re running late, is not especially enjoyable. Here’s my easy fix: attach a long-bristled brush to the far end of the gate in such a way that it pushes stones and other debris out of the way every time you open it. Thanks for a great magazine… and keep the DIY projects coming.
