Wishing Jerry a quick recovery! My ramp build has run into technical difficulties. I need a ramp that is at least 7 feet long. A 7' ramp will not fit in my SUV, so I added a couple door hinges in the middle. The common board just can't hold any weight at the hinge. I need to reinforce at the join/hinge with metal/something strong. I was going to buy a 6" hook and eye latch, and see if it can hold together.
