Anyone know where I can get say 20 or so for a good price? Home depot had a 2 pack of 12in quick grips for 20 bucks...but I'd like to stay a little cheaper than that!
That's when I usually throw down a piece of 3/4" ply on top of it and back my car on to it.

3-inch Schedule 40 PVC pipe scrap
Cut pipe about 1" wide, then slice it once to form clamp. The wider you make the clamp, 2-inches for example, the stronger the clamp. You can make clamps from 2-inch pipe, on up. Ideal for shop, hobby, home, whatever.
you can make a cool tater-gun outa it also, i went with stell though,,,
And some more uses;
