Backing in to hook up

Here is a product we saw for the first time at a fiberglass rally here on Vancouver Island this last weekend. Some of you Florida fishermen may already be familiar with it but if you are not this little gimmick is a sweetheart! Here is the web addres, scroll to the bottom of animation page and click where instructed:

No more blue air and black rages before you start off.

One could make a set of those from two junkyard antenas, a couple of alligator clips, and two pingpong balls I think.

Connect the dots

We made our own out of a couple of dowel rods, a drape ring, and a wooden ball. Works well.

A few people have bought these lately (I did yesterday) from eBay. Here is the link for the item. If this doesn't work, go to ebay.com and in search, type in hitch finder.

Happy travels!

Hitch totem

Ooh, I like it. That is what I love about the Internet, always being exposed to new cultures and new uses for ancient techniques!

I'm gonna get me a log and start carving!

I already avoided divorce...

Never mind the hitch totem, I avoided divorce by skipping my first 4 marriages. :chased

I am holding out for my fifth marriage, the one that will last.:wub :wub

But first, I gotta enjoy my new egg!:steer

The hitch finder gizmo from ebay works great for me.
It all folds up into a small plastic bag (6 X 11 inches) for storage.
There is another thread here dealing with the same subjet at:
