    Weber Gas Grill Back Saver

    Moving a full propane tank into the base of a Weber grill is an awkward lift that can strain my back. Here is how I used low tech to solve the problem.

    New yesterday from ruxu is this conceptually similar build: Tire lift and aligner

    Interestingly, it's not so much the weight of either job that destroys the back; lifting a tire or a propane tank is a perfectly manageable task for an adult. It's that awkwardly-angled but necessarily precise insertion of a heavy object onto or into a limited space.
