Pool Noodles-Thank You

Whoever posted the idea to use pool noodles to cushion a ladder - Thanks!

I used a towei on a 1x4 on the road side, but then i saw your post. Now working on curb side and don't need the load spreading. But the noodle will work on the 1x4 if i do.

I cut a large pool noodle in half and split it up one side. The pieces slip over the ladder legs and slide to wherever i need them.

I love this forum!

Another use for pool noodles— slice them lengthwise, and slip them over the awning arms in the area where you're most likely to bump your head. Or if you have kids, where they're most likely to bump their heads.

I do that on my Fiamma awning arms. To hold them in place I secure each end with a reusable Velcro cable tie. I always use a pool noodle on the awing arm closest to my door, not always at the other end of the awning.
