I need some suggestions on a good way to cover my pin box for safety reasons.

I have several kids in my neighborhood and one of the girls almost hit her face yesterday on the pin box. The last thing I would want is for one of them to hit it while running...
I know I could cover it in bubble wrap and duct tape, but would like something that I could put on and take off that is re usable.

Mike

Those noodles that kids use to swim with. Also good on the corners of your slideouts. You can find them at Walmart or Academy. Some have slits down one side and if not you can make them then slide them over the sharp edges. The link is just to show you what to get.

I have seen where people have take a 4" pvc end cap with glued magnetic on the inside and place that under the pin. It's not soft, but it's white and keeps one from getting grease on them.

Camping World has had a padded cover available in the past. I have not looked recently but I used to have one for my extended pin box.

I just checked CW and Camper Clinic sites. Also checked Adco Products, Inc. site [they made it] with same results. It must be discontinued. Perhaps another retailer would have one left yet.
