    I made a mulch "screen" for my Toro WB out of expanded metal. I had a scrape laying around, so I cut it a bit larger than the deck opening and bent it 90 degrees around the front of the deck. Then I drilled two holes in the deck and welded on a couple of nuts. Now all I do to put it on or take it off is run those two bolts. Hardly any debris comes out or plugs it up. And all those holes allow a lot of air flow so the deck still has good suction.
