Step 1: Parts list
1 long enough pole to extend reach
(a long dowel, broom stick, or lacrosse stick works perfect)
1 spacer about 2 inches wider than the user's foot
2 clothes hangers with clips
(not pictured, I could not find one at the time)
Step 2: Taping spacer to pole
Duct tape makes the project quick and easy to complete without drilling any holes.
Step 3: Attach hangers
Center the hanger on the side of the pole and use 3 or 4 crossing pieces of duct tape to fasten the hanger. Test to ensure the hanger does not move
Center the second hanger on the side of the block and use 3 or 4 crossing pieces of duct tape to fasten the hanger. Test to ensure the hanger does not move
Step 4: Adding a shoehorn
If the duct tape is not strong enough to withstand the force of using the shoehorn. Drill 2 holes in the shoehorn and screw it directly to the pole.
