    Make one. The dragging chain design works WAY too well not to do it. I have the striping kit for the Lazer, and while it works (very) well, I would and will never buy another. less than 40 or 50 bucks from the hardware store will build one that will do things that the roller kit cannot touch.

    Another good reason maybe to use dragging chain is when you have to back up onto curbs ( WB ) .

    Some of the best pics I've ever seen on this was from Eric ELM. Unfortunately, I don't think we can any longer post pics of this on here, as it is offered on another site. (Ironic that a guy who was a saint to the industry, a key figure on this site - and lived to share and teach and help people can't have his stuff shared with others on here anymore). maybe a google search can turn something up on him, but that is all I can state, really.
