Then go to L0ud0unExtra d0t c0m and look at their L1v1ng 1n L0c0 blog, there's a story there about a famous author and a reference to me!
If you ever have to put together Y(a)r(d) S(i)g(n)s, I have the perfect technique.
First, wear grippy gloves. These are great and they protect your hands from the oil, grime and pokey things on the wires.
Second, if you're me, wear eye protection. Seriously.
Unbox the signs and wires and cut any binding stuff off of them. Place the wires so that they are leaning on a side wire, with the top bars facing you (if some are facing the other way, ignore them for the present). Place the signs so that the opening on the bottom is closest to you.
Now, sit with the wires near your dominant hand and the signs near your non-dom hand. Grab the top bar of a wire and pull it out from the rest of its brethren. Then move your hand to the free side wire and push it down toward the other side wire (the one on the bottom) until you can grip them both in that one hand.
With your other hand, pop open the bottom of a sign and bring sign and wire together. Once the wire is in the sign, let go of the side wires and let them pop into place.
I did 200 of them in about an hour today.
