If you, like me, have the misfortune of finding yourself on crutches for the foreseeable future then you will also be driven crazy by the sound of them regularly clattering to the floor. Crutches are naturally top heavy owing to the elbow cuffs and hand grips so it doesn't take much for them to fall over. They can be quite a hazard for young children and pets.
This instructable gives details of how to make a cheap device for keeping them upright using shower curtain hooks and a coat hook.
I've entered this in the spring cleaning challenge so if you like it please vote. I like the idea of winning a roomba to keep my dog entertained when I go out! ;)
Step 1: Ingredients
A coat hook
Two shower curtain hooks that are big enough to allow the crutches to slot easily inside
A corresponding screwdriver
A spare bit of wall to attach the hook to
Step 2: Assemblage
It's helpful for me to have them there as I still sometimes forget my crutches when leaving the house and I'll have begun limping my way to the front gate before I remember.
