  1. Hello. I am a teacher and I use tennis balls as a kind of “shoe” for the legs of the chairs and tables in my classroom. In this way, when the little ones have to move the tables or chairs, they do not make any noise. My class is tennis silent !!! 😉

  2. Good ideas, similar to the use proposed by Teresa, I use them for the legs of the portable ladder and thus avoid scratching the floor.

  3. I made a bumper in the garage, I used a plank on which I put the balls screwed (a small cut and I put the screw from inside). that plank stuck to the wall makes when I park if I step a little long do not hit the wall with the car. Dampens perfectly.
