After thousands of home inspections, it sometimes begins to look routine.

That is until the home inspector encountered this San Leandro mobile home creatively using crutches to support the side door awning.

At first glance, it looked a little odd – but, what do you do with crutches when they’re not needed anymore?

Do you know that there are five types of crutches: Forearm, Underarm, Strutters, Platform, and Leg Support?

The homeowner used the underarm crutches, which are the most common type in U.S. and are used most often by people with temporary disability or injury.

The crutch design has evolved from the basic “T” used by Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol… to aluminum braces with ice-gripping tips… and energy-storing tips that function as shock absorbers – kind of like Air Jordans for the injured.
