Ceiling Fan Tool for Vertically Challenged Campers

I know, it is probably not "POLITICALLY CORRECT", but my 5'4" wife has a difficult time trying reach the ceiling fan controls in our Eagle with 7' ceilings. Her knees are not the greatest, so I figured I would come up with a tool to keep her out of the emergency room (climbing up on the toilet/bathtub)..


Parts needed:
(1) - 2' length of 1/2" PVC
(1) - 1 1/2" to 1/2" PVC reducer
(1) - 1/2" to 1" PVC reducer

Now have one happy wife... here are some pictures to make the project easier

Yep. Patent it then go on "Shark Tank" and get a $500K loan for 10% ownership of your "Vertically Challenged Fan Adjustor" company.

I would start making them and walking around campgrounds selling them for 39.95. You can easily tell by the unit who will need them.

Great invention! You could even offer a second tip designed for the window crank over the dinette.

. . . and if I order within the next 30 minutes, do I get a second one free (just pay additional shipping and handling)?
