Use Broom Handle for Extension

A small nail tacked into the top of a broom handle can serve numerous purposes over time. I have used a 1 inch brad in my broom handle to hang light items from nails up high on the porch, etc. No need to drag out a ladder or chair to reach!

Hi I put a small cup hook into the end of a dowel. We have a doorbell that plays music and in order to change the melody you have to flip down to each song. So I put the hook on the end of the dowel and now I pull the lever down to the song I wish to be playing when the doorbell rings :>)

I also use it to reach the fan pulls to change the speeds or directions. You can grasp the chain or fanpull easy!
