I will start with #1. My water heater in the garage started leaking today and began to flood the garage floor. I called the plumber but he can't come out until tomorrow. I can see where the water is dripping on the bottom of the water heater, but can't locate the source of the leak inside. So I put a large bucket right beside the wooden platform/pedestal that the water heater sits on top of. Now I need something that would catch the water drops and send them down into the bucket. Since I'm not much of a handyman, I came up with a temporary solution that any racquet junkie would have thought of: Use a pallet! So I put some pieces of wood under one end of the pallet to tilt the pallet downward, and voilà! My garage will be safe until tomorrow. Now that pallet is a Head TK82S, perfect for this job. But if the flow of water gets any heavier, then I would have to replace that with a Volkl pallet because it has a deeper groove. So there you go. I invite you to submit other ways in which you have put your racquet handle pallets to good use.
