--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Designed for persons with limited mobility and reach, adaptors and extension handles can be used to control electrical equipment and key switches. Long extension handles can be made from sections of steel tubing with two notches cut out on one end and a crosspiece welded to the other to form a 't" handle. Short pieces of rubber heater hose are clamped onto the control knobs of electrical equipment, such as a car radio or air conditioner. To operate the controls, the end of the extension is inserted into the heater hose and turned. Control extension handles can also be constructed of PVC pipe, steel conduit or wooden dowel rod.
