Title: Adding new tool holders on buckets and carts
Description: glue cut pvc

I haven't tried this but if I can glue clothespins onto a cart I can glue sort lengths of PVC pipe onto my cart to customize it for my cart. For slipping tool handles into. I was thinking about putting them on a bucket for my window squeegee and window scrubber providing the bucket was high enough so handles didn't hit floor.
Just food for thought. Everytime I wash windows I put this under this arm and tuck this one in my pocket while I do this and then it changes on the next proceedure or when I move to the next project.

100 percent silicone caulk in a small tube will probably stick those pipes to a can very firmly as long as both surfaces are pretty much clean and dry and you give it a at least a day to dry. Hold them into place with duct or masking tape until they do dry.

These are the types of ideas I just love. Waiting to hear result.
I purchased some fabric and sewed a bag to go on the back of my custodial cart for extra cleaning clothes & a smaller bag to go on the side of my cart for a brush (for dustmop) screw drivers & other tools to keep them dry.
On 44 gallon cans, I put cheap plastic drink pitchers for holding trash liner rolls. I drill a couple holes through the side and attach them to the can handle with small chains. A person could cut/use an empty chemical jug and a zip-ties, but I've found these can be a bit sharp, are thinner plastic and the zip-ties can break more easily with time. They don't look as nice too.

The cart bags I mentioned sewing. I also made them for different co-workers for their carts with whatever theme they wanted with a dark color to hide dirt. They were a nice Christmas gift. Examples: Horses, Race cars, Tigers (school related theme), Shamrocks (school related theme)
At one point I considered taking orders as a fundraiser in my school district with funds minus cost going toward my school or budget. I'm not sure I want to devote so much time/energy into such an undertaking. It sure would make me shine with administration though. Since I work in a Middle School (Jr. High) they have some sewing classes, which could be a possible project for them and it might be more meaningful to custodians if they were gifts from students.
Sorry if I distracted from the thread any... 'tool holders on buckets and carts'
