--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Retractable metal rod attached to crutch tips for increased safety when walking on ice. A wooden block is screwed onto a metal faceplate slotted to permit a metal rod to slide up and down the middle of a crutch and lock into place. The block is bolted to the crutch just under the handgrips. A small hole is drilled through the crutch tip to allow the point of the metal rod to extend beyond the crutch tip as needed. Includes photograph and diagram. COMMENTS: Idea submitted by Richard E Rednick, New York. SKILLS REQUIRED: Metalworking.
