DO IT YOURSELF ENTRYPURPOSE: To create a do-it-yourself high-reach tool with household items. A mop or broom handle serves as the shaft of the reacher. Using a drill, make a small hole in both clamp handles and secure the clamp to the end of a mop handle with a hose clamp. Next, feed cable through the bottom handle and attach to the top of the handle with a carriage bolt. A hole can be drilled through the bolt to better accompany the cable. Secure the cable using zip ties. Finally, attach the cable to a brake lever and secure it to the mop handle. MATERIALS: One brake lever with perch, one brake cable, one clamp, three zip ties, one hose clamp, one mop or broom handle, and one small carriage bolt with nut and washer. TOOLS: Drill bit and drill. SKILLS REQUIRED: Carpentry/shop skills. TITLE: Build a high-reach tool with household items. WEBSITE: Instructables.
