How high am I? has the answer

| September 25, 2011

If you’ve ever asked yourself that question after loading a car hauler or an expensive piece of machinery on an open-deck trailer, Oregon-based Stephen Rowe (pictured: don’t try this at home) has a tool to help you answer it.

His Auto Hauler Supply company’s new Life Saver Height Stick is made of durable bright-orange fiberglass and measures up to 15 ft. or 5 meters – and marked as such. Most importantly, its collapsed length is only 4-ft. 10-in., easily stored in the sleeper. It’s available for order at with a cloth storage bag for $149.95 and ships from Butler, Penn.
