The DIY Fix

You look at the situation and you discover you have more of a major hazard on your hands than just a significant step in a slippery slope. You’re a little freaked out, but you haven’t done anything with it yet. What should you do?

The Bypass

1. Do some research

You should read a published article by the research institute, and if you want to do it yourself use this article as a starting point.

2. Go to second- and third-stage work

With a half-second click with the clicker, make sure you are on flat ground. So far it has only been slight to moderate leverage to break a step. However, it is time to make sure it’s in place.

3. Pick it up

This can be a complicated chore, you want to make sure you lift it in a place that you can’t knock it off with any force, such as the wall.

4. Locate the problem area

One of the easiest ways to fix a hazard is to lay some chalk down. Now you can see where the danger is, and instead of grabbing it, you don’t have to.

5. Line it up

Draw a groove around it, making sure you can hold it safely in place. You can apply some clear tape to help prevent injury. Once this is done, assemble it around the hazard area and connect the chalk along the lines.
