    TENNIS BALL...it is easy to set up, costs $1, and you will never trip over it when you are carrying in a load of groceries. position it to meet the rear view mirror mount....

    No Garage at home here But when I was down in Ga for 2 years I used a old tire in the back of the garage and when I backed in every night my hitch would just go in the middle and the tire would tell me Close enough...

    Caution......keep the kids away from Tennis Ball when dad is not home.

    I have a truck mirror mounted on the back wall of my garage so I can see exactly how close I am. Allows me to park within 1" of the wall. More trustworthy than a tennis ball and nothing dangling to get in the way when doing repairs.

    If you are close to a wall i use a piece of tape on the wall and i just open my door and line the edge of the door up with the tape. Works great

    I put a red brick on floor and outlined it with a marker so if I kick it I know where it belongs
