What is this?

Sloppie photo-shop art not included

Hint: I found this at a real brick-n-mortar store and have never seen it again.  Too bad, cause it works pretty well.

What do you think it is?

    They’re for picking up leaves.

    They are leaf rakers for your hands so you can pick up a pile and put it in a bag. 🙂

    I thought it was a cable tidy actually. But I’m thinking it probably isn’t now, hearing the leaf comments :p

      @eClipse ah ha! Good eye everyone. I would have never guessed that.

    As a leaf scoop/trash can lid unit, it is a pretty seasonal item. You should start seeing them again here in a couple weeks as home centers start to shift from summer to fall stuff.

    Are we going to see an alternate purpose of this item in a horror movie?
