    Duck(ouch)under

    A duckunder is a good place to put some surplus plastic foam. I don't have a duckunder, but I put some on the entrance to the crawlspace, and it has been handy several times this week as we put Xmas stuff away.
    (Crawlspace: a half-height section of basement, caused by house builders who are to cheap to excavate fully.) Our entrance is not over 4 feet high.
    Just wondering: does the expanding foam in a can stick well enough to use here?

    Duckunder foam protection

    That plastic spray foam sticks to EVERYTHING. (Resist the urge to blow out the little plastic tube nozzle to make re-use easier. I tried it and thuk my wipz togetfer, wife lafd for hourth, now a famiry regend.)

    Seriously, I use the pre-slit foam cylinders sold to insulate copper pipe, they're dirt cheap. My duckunder is vertical 1 by 4s, so I just snapped the insulating tubes on the bottom of the 1 x 4s & secured them with a few brads on the side of the foam. Saved many a back scrape.
