In a video posted to YouTube on Monday, an employee at a construction company in Florida described how he installed a steel plate in the garage of his home.
The employee said the plate would prevent the garage from being damaged when it rains.
He also said the plates were effective in preventing a fire in his home, because the plates would keep the garage safe during a fire.
The construction worker, who asked that his name not be used, has a family member with a severe spinal injury.
He said he installed the steel plate after hearing that it could help his family.
The company that owns the construction company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
