Rigger’s Notebook Pool Noodles Rule!
Two new applications for what has to be the most versatile DIY item since the film cannister (remember film cannisters?).

With so many tasks to perform during the earlymorning ritual of getting ready to go fishing, it’s easy to forget that the perfectly placed trailer hitch sits just about knee level. I dealt with this potentially painful situation by sliding a split pool noodle over the hitch and zip-tying it around the drawbar, leaving the part around the ball free to open for hitching up.

As a former mechanic, I know your arms can get pretty cut up due to sharp edges on fenders, so when I had to work on my trailer brakes, I took a precaution. I split a swim noodle lengthwise and fit it around the edge of the fender. One less thing to worry about as I worked on the trailer. Anthony Perkins, Hampton Roads, Virginia
