A Cleveland County couple has created a new tool to make checking the mail a little more convenient.
When unused, the tool — a small piece of bright yellow plastic attached to an anchor —stays tucked on the side of a user’s mailbox. When the lid is opened, the piece falls forward and remains extended after the mailbox is closed again.
Use of the flags is approved by the U.S. Postal Service, Jozel added, and the couple has applied for a patent on the design of the flags.
All of the flags are manufactured in Gastonia, and are available to order by calling 704-751-6818, or by visiting cleverproductsdirect.com. Starting next week, they will also be available for sale at TruValue in Kings Mountain and at select Ace Hardware stores in the area.
