I do the same thing Lou except mine is a piece of grey PVC.
I painted the ends red.
I place one end of the pvc pipe against whatever sticks out the furthest and then I place my tires about an inch away from the other end.
I went one step further and marked same pipe with the height of the bottom of my slide.
I use this as a gauge to make sure the slide will clear any obstacles that may stick up from the ground like a water hook-up or a rock.
