Introduction: Assisted Fruit Picker With Scrap
I've always problems with harvest my garden because the best fruis are so high where I can't reach them, also pulling them out is not the best way to do it.
In this Instructable, I'll show you how to create a very useful assisted fruit picker from scraps, using some old garden tools and bike parts that I have forgotten in my house.
Long stick (I used a bamboo one, but you can use a broomstick or anything)
Bicycle brake handle
Bike brake cable
5mm allen wrench
Step 1: Positioning
Position and fix the scissors and the brake on the stick.I used some screws to joint the parts
It is important to note that both elements must be diametrically opposite as shown in the figure
Step 2: Join Using the Bike Brake Cable
Cut the bike brake cable and insert it into the brake, then insert it through the stick by a hole previously made and pass the scissors.
Secure the cable with a fasting element.
Step 3: Prepare the Bag
Use an old cloth bag and hold it with the bike brake cable
Step 4: Attach the Bag to the Stick and Try It!
We're almost done, you must verify that the brake mechanism works and try it in a tree!
