I picked up a smaller 10A battery charger at an auction for $2. It was
labelled "DONT WORK". I could see one of the wires on the AC power cord
was not even inside the plug. Also it was missing one of the battery
clips, and had no handle. It took me 10 minutes to fix the power cord
and add a batt clip which I had in my parts box. It now works great!
The handle is not really required, but it is sort of clunky to carry it
without a handle. The handle was probably a piece of plastic and they
all break after they get old.
Anyhow, there are 2 slots on the top about an inch wide. Spaced about 8"
apart. There are fins in between, so it would be hard to attach
something like a barn door metal handle. Yea, a piece of thick baling
wire would probably work, but I'd like something a little easier on the
Anyone have any suggestions what I can use? Preferably something that
costs little or nothing.
I do wish I had kept the nylon horse halter that broke last summer, a
piece of that would have worked well, but if I saved everything I'd be
buried in junk. And I'm not going to cut up a $15 new halter.....
Suggestions please !!!
The chargers I've seen, the covers come off
easily enough. So you can see where there is
air space. Perhaps a leather punch, section of
old belt, couple pilot holes and pop rivets
Or the barn handle and pop rivets, but make
new holes not near the fins and lektrik

That's 20 cents an amp.
I got one from Freecycle not too long ago. It said 10 amp and 2 amp
and for some reason I thought it meant it automatically switched to 2
amps when the battery was close to being charged, and that's why I
wanted it. But it wasn't like that at all. It was two settings.
It also needed a handle and I thought I could take it apart to put one
in, but there were no screws, just iirc metal tabs bent over, and I
figured if I bent them back and forth, at least some would break off
and that would bother somewhat obsessive me.
Then I thought about all the large and huge nylon zip ties I have.
Some are three feet long, maybe four. I get them by taking down
illegally posted advertising on phone and light poles. And get this,
they're pre-bent by being wrapped around the poles. In this case I
used an 18 or 22" piece, and it was just the same width as the square
holes where the original handle was attached. Pushed it in one hole
and like a gopher it popped out the other hole. Pushed the end in
the receiver and it won't come out without lots of fiddling. Done.
Some of these ties I get off in one piece, or I stick a small
screwdriver in them to release where they lock, but others I cut with
Wiz shears I keep in the car, and they have square ends and that's
what I used this time.
Several of us, who don't know each other and work independently, keep
this area pretty much free of advertising.

As I may have mentioned before, Baltimore County passed a law to
explicitly authorize everyone to do this.
Once one guy noticed me doing it to his signs, and caught up with me.
I was a bit afraid he'd be angry and violent and he was angry but I
convinced him his signs were against the law.
He has a school supposedly training nurse's assistents etc. A
foreigner. I feel a little sorry for him because he hasn't replaced
his signs, while some others keep putting up new ones. But that's
the law and the n'hood is not a billboard.
I don't take yard sale signs, and some other categories.
Though there was one that had loads of duck tape all over the light
pole and the sign was up weeks afterwards, and the duck tape was goin
g to stay on for months, for a community association , and I got so
mad I tracked down who was in charge. He didn't give a darn but i
felt bet ter.

Any ranch supply and probably most hardware store have spools of webbing
they sell by the foot for a very nominal price. I'd probably loop it
through the slots and stitch it with a sewing awl, but the same place
with sell matching plastic buckles and connectors.
