Renee and Jim live east of town a ways and are
continually plagued by high winds. The weather really is
different once you are out of town. Keeping wheel covers on
the tires is impossible, so we liked the idea of using
bungee cords and s-links to secure the covers.
Sliding Door Woes
This terrific idea comes from
Pat and Russ Peterson:
We bought a latch made for
double hung windows ($2.49 at Lowe's). Put the latch part on the door frame
and the latching plate on the side of the door. The latch rotates and pulls
the plate (and door-ed.) in tight. When unlatched, the latch rotates
out of the way so you can slide the door closed. Just about fool proof."
