Simon’s Ramblin’ Road Trip

Simon's Ramblin' Road Trip

Follow along with Simon (video) as he rambled across the country this summer
covering bollards in need. From the moment he dusted off his ride at the self-storage facility to his visit to Hoover Dam, he really enjoyed the sites and covered a record number of ugly bollards.

Simon then cruised all the way to Florida where he went Rollin’ down highway 41. He loaded up with cash at an ATM and then filled up with gas and a lot of food at some very colorful establishments.

What a terrific way to spend the summer!

Of course, you can also follow Simon the Post Guard on his

Look, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, no, it’s an overhead clearance bar!

Many new trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles are taller than ever. It is important to let drivers know if they have enough clearance to enter a parking garage, drive-thru or car wash. Simon’s Height Guard Clearance Bar is the perfect solution. Constructed of high density polyethylene plastic, this clearance bar is easily installed and alerts drivers to a low height limit.

Available in a variety of colors, the Height Guard Clearance Bar comes with a graphic kit to customize the clearance height. Plus, reflective stripes are highly visible, even in a low light situation. Size is no object! The Height Guard can be customized to any length, large or small.

Protect your facility and prevent damage before it happens.
