TRAILER BACKUP FLAGS

Outdoor Life - - ON THE WATER - —T.H.

You can solve the ex­cru­ci­at­ing process of back­ing up a trailer by your­self with two flex­i­ble flags (re­mem­ber those old­school flags you used to fly proudly off the back of your bi­cy­cle?) and a pair of mag­nets. Find bar mag­nets on­line. I bought two 3-packs of them for about $5 on Ama­zon. Use five-minute epoxy to lam­i­nate the mag­nets to­gether. Next, smear epoxy on the side of the mag­net stack, and press one of the flag­poles in place. Re­peat with the se­cond set. To use, sim­ply place a mag­netic flag on both the trailer tongue and the hitch ball when you need to back up. Now you can line up your trailer with­out leav­ing the cab.
