"DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable individuals with communication disabilities to communicate. To make this device, using a hack saw or PVC cutting tool, cut the 52 inches of PVC tubing into one 16-inch segment, two 14-inch segments and four two-inch segments. Insert each 14-inch segment of PVC tubing into a PVC tee connector. Insert the other end of each 14-inch segment into a PVC elbow. Join the two 14-inch segments using the 16-inch segment by inserting each end of the 16-inch segment into the open ends of the PVC elbows. Insert the remaining four two--inch segments into the open ends of the PVC tees to complete the base of the E-Tran. Place caps on the ends of the two-inch segments (optional). Affix half-inch square pieces of adhesive-backed Velcro at even intervals on the PVC tubing to hold the communication symbols. Optionally, use binder rings to suspend the slide protector sheet from the top of the E-Tran, then insert communication symbols into the slide pockets. MATERIALS: Two half-inch PVC tee connectors; two half-inch PVC elbow connectors; 52 inches of half-inch schedule 40 PVC tubing; four half-inch PVC caps (optional); adhesive-backed Velcro; two half- or three-quarter-inch binder rings (optional); one standard 8.5 x 11inch slide protector sheet (optional).
