By now, you’re probably familiar with the story of a few people in California who spent weeks in the woods after an aluminum patio was stolen from their driveway.
The problem: the aluminum rust was too large to be removed with a screwdriver, and the aluminum was corroding the edges of the patio’s metal edges.
(It was also corroding their water bottles, which would be a concern if they had any.)
So the owners of a house on a secluded lot decided to take matters into their own hands, and installed a rust-proof aluminum patio gate.
The patio gate was nearly invisible, even to a person who could see through the thin, plastic-covered glass that protects the metal edges of aluminum bars.
It was also incredibly easy to remove, which was good because the metal had already corroded the edges in the first place.
