Funnel Materials From a Truck Bed

When I hauled driveway rock with fines in it or limestone using my tandem truck, most of it would stick in the corners of the bed. It didn’t come out easily, like grain does. Now I put these boards in the corners. Each 2×4 brace has a hinge so it folds to fit through the rear grain door. A ¼-inch bolt in the back and one in the side hold it in place.
