Jumping onto the bed of my pickup truck to get a different hitch, chain, or whatever I might have on there gets harder as I get older. To make that easier and prevent me from having to climb up, I made a rod that’s 1/4 inch in diameter and 6 feet long. I welded a 5-inch piece of the same material on both ends of the rod to use as hooks. Now I can reach for whatever I want right from the ground without having to climb up into the truck.
