Starting to think about leaf season. I built a box for our stake body dump but am looking for a top. I've seen the mesh tops that are curved up with aluminum poles for added size but can't find them. Anybody know who makes them?

DIY with some metal or plastic conduit and a mesh tarp from Lowes/Home Depot.

I use mesh tarps. I bought them from Northern Tool.

We used wood sides with wood top...cut like two 1'x'6 vents in the wood (lengthwise) and double lined with screens for ventilation...worked really well.

That's where I used to get mine then found them at Harbor Freight for about half of what I was paying at NT.

One time someone sliced/slashed the top of my buddy's tarp for his leaf box up
(found out when he got on the job)
Pulled out his staple gun and some cheap-o weed block lasted at least the rest of the day!

I have been using them for 20 years+You can access the leaves and pack them why anyone would want a ceiling over their head is their business. Whatever works for everyone else is fine with me I dropped out of the debating society.

how do you secure the mesh top so it is easy to put on and off
