Yes. Happened to be in Tennessee, but I'm sure they're anywhere. In the baby section. Pack of........6, methinks.

Today I

Today I . . .
installed a Screen Door handle,
Strapped down my Wally and blu ray player,
Installed some shelving in the cabinets,
rearranged and straightened up the basement for our next trip,
and added some decals.

You could have turned on the “brighter than the sun” LED overhead light...
I think you could paint then black and it would still be bright.

2) I have wing nuts for that, used them once, found them SUPER annoying. A knob would likely be way better than the wingnuts, but still....... This is meant to *save* time, not spend it. If someone wants to steal my worthless boards, they can go for it. The ones I needed will be under the wheels.
1. I got that right off, why have to take them ALL off when you can stack them so what you want first is the first off the rack.

2. With the knob you could shorten the rods that go through the boards and no worries about them bouncing off because the rod is short. a good 30 seconds to remove the two knobs...........

But Im NOT saying anything critical because I LOVE what you made!

I like the strap idea too.

Lastly, where did you get the piece you put on the cabinet corner> I have two, "Head Bangers"

I've done a little welding but definitely not my calling. If these seem to work out good then I will build another set and make them look a little better. I might even try to design some that can fold up on the steps and be sturdier.

Here are some that I made. They all worked great. I now have the Torque Lift steps which are great.

Put it back into my shop, Looks like we will not be using it much if any this season since I have been diagnosed with Lung cancer.

I mounted a scissor jack to the middle step and it folds up with the steps and does not stick out any further than the awning. big help while stepping in and out of the trailer for stability.
