From the look of the studio floor, who would ever think I occasionally sweep the floor. The stand-by-itself dust pan was an idea I came up with to avoid having to bend my stiff back and hold the pan still while I’m trying to push the debris into it.
I attached a length of flat bar to the dust pan handle so that it made the pan work like a tripod base with a tall handle - no bending. Works great.
There are fancier versions. This is one example http://www.foodservicewarehouse.com/continental/808/p334657.aspx My version cost only a couple of bucks.
