Clint works at the ticket counter but he is unable to reach across the wide counter to the window opening. He uses a wheelchair, and has limited range of motion and reach.

A box with a handle was constructed. It fits through the small window opening and it has a weighted cushion to hold down paper money and tickets. This is a windy location.

Cost Analysis

Cost of the modification was a few dollars, being constructed almost entirely of scrap material most small shops would have on hand. An old broom handle is the source of the handle on this mod.
