How to Clean Rototiller Tines

While using a rototiller, I carry a screwdriver to clean out the tines when they become clogged with roots. But the screwdriver always falls out of my pocket. So, here is my solution: I attached a length of pipe, just the right diameter and length for the screwdriver, to the tiller handle with a couple of hose clamps. Now the screwdriver is always available when I need it.
