Help against rape stubble

Post by Spearhead » Tue Jul 24, 2018 6:44 pm

I thought that this idea may be useful. I have just had some rape stubble become available but the stalks are a problem with the open spider type coils as they snag on the gaps in the coil. Today I visited Poundland and purchased a pack of three vinyl self adhesive floor tiles for £1. It was a simple job to cut one of the tiles to shape and stick it underneath the coil. It will now stop those additional annoying stalk snags.

Good idea, bet it matches your other oak effect covers. :))
