I finally had an incident this weekend which has me motivated. I was moving some scrap metal counterweighted conveyor paint racks out of my s10. Got the first one out, was moving the second one when I tripped on the first and because it weighed about. 120 pounds I when over backwards and the counter weight landed in my lap. I also managed to knock a stick of 2x3 heavy wall down which I was able to deflect behind me and it ended up on top of the light end of the rack.

These rack have 2 foot long pieces of 1x3 and as luck would have it they landed interlocked.
Took me about 5 minutes to figure out a safe way out of the mess as I could barely lift the weight since I was sitting.
Once I got the counterweight on top of the 1x3 it wasn't really stable and was likely to fall and break my leg when I started to move and everything could shift.

So there I sat with 3 pieces of 120 metal
