For years, Mr. Weiner attended events and watched, baffled, as workers struggled to carry heavy metal stanchions to vari- ous sites for crowd control. He found it awkward and unnatu- ral to see them try to move the heavy barriers around on dol- lies or in shopping carts. Mr. Weiner thought there had to be a more efficient and safer way to transport these types of tem- porary barriers.
