This rope, paired with a few bolts and nuts, is used to assist in accessing the trunk of my hatchback. Each time I drive from place to place, I walk to the back of my vehicle, open the trunk, pull out my mobility scooter, and then yank this rope (fastened to the trunk door itself) to lower the trunk door and swiftly toss the rope into the car as it shuts.
I use this because I am of short stature and cannot reach the trunk door to close it once it is ajar. I have instructed many people in my life to use this DIY access solution and it has become quite a task for them to master. I enjoy the opportunity to play with this rope myself and share it with others, almost as if it is a sort of game of "can you get the rope inside fast enough before the trunk shuts?"
It's an object that one wouldn't necessarily could be tied to the theme of disability. Disabled folks come up with cheap and creative solutions all of the time to solve basic tasks of daily living.
