Congratulations to the Town of Milford's Department of Public Works for their winning entry for the 2016 Build a Better Mousetrap Competition! They will receive five T2 Center class coupons, and are entered into the National Competition. Their innovative design is a safety solution to doing maintenance work on dump truck tail gates. The Dump Gate Safety Prop locks into the tailgate dogs and locks over the tailgate pin to secure the tail gate rather than having to remove it to do maintenance. It is a universal and adjustable device so that it fits multiple makes and years of trucks.
Build a Better Mousetrap's purpose is to collect and disseminate real world examples of best practices, tips from the field, and assist in the transfer of technology. The competition is a fantastic way for innovative ideas to be exchanged with others who may benefit from different concepts and perspectives.
