Guide-Guard Keeps Sliding Door Free of Ice in Winter

In the winter, the outside door guide on my machine shed doesn’t work very well. Snow covers it up, melts, and then ice forms, which makes it impossible to open. So I built a cover for the guide from some 2×6s and a steel handle. After we get snow or ice, I can remove it to find the guide is always clean and dry. Then I just replace it again after I close the door.
