Making do on a moments notice

Posted: April 15, 2011 by kelleinmt in MacGyverism

When our chicks arrived 10 weeks ago, we had to find a place to put them( to many baby animals and not enough space) the front pork was cleared but the dilemma was no outlet for the heat lamp. My Dh had a screw in plug-in( from an auction treasure box) that screws into a light receptacles. Okay now the light cord isn’t long enough to get it down close enough to the chicks, so Dh improved this rig from parts and pieces.  Dh mad a clamp to clamp to the side of the wash tub, then used a piece of metal( he’s always collecting for blacksmithing) and  some chain I’d saved from a hanging light we took down and replaced. 

Here is the finished product and it works great!
