The location was at my house in Beltsville MD.
The "Take It!” came from having seen a testing of a solution I put together to stop my trash cans from being either completely blown over in strong wind or in lighter wind have the lids blown
open. Either way, they looked unsightly as they are next to my back door, and a part of what greets me as I drive into the drive way and park the car. The other day we had wind up to
21 mph with gusts to even higher levels. Everything happily held and in the calm of today - I was able to roll the containers to the curb trash pick up.
The containment kit included manila twine, metal release clips, and metal screw eyes suitable to anchor in wood. The lids were more of a chore to bring into the unflappable range as they did not
have very much of a matching lip for the lid to fit up with the body of the trash can. This called for some investment in some wide mouth vice grip like plyers which were just barely able to
catch enough edge to do the job.
This was one of those pass it along's that worked so well for me - that if there is anyone out there that has the same difficulty - perhaps it can work for you as well.
Wishing everyone my best,
