A Toronto plumber is helping to make Halloween a bit safer by rigging up an alternative for handing out candy to local trick-or-treaters in his neighbourhood.

Geoff Burke is working to install something called "Candy Chutes" — an inventive way to get candy to kids while practising physical distancing.

"It brings a little bit of joy, and it's relatively safe," Burke said.

Made out of basic PVC pipes, the chute is attached to a stair bannister in front of a house.

Many candies contain common allergens like nuts, milk, eggs, soy, and wheat, and all it takes is the tiniest trace to set off a life-threatening reaction. The Teal Pumpkin Project aims to raise awareness of food allergies and make Halloween inclusive for the one in 13 American children who are afflicted.

A Halloween -obsessed dad created a safe way to hand out candy this year. See how Andrew Beattie installed a candy chute on his porch railing in Cincinnati, Ohio, made from a shipping tube. A sign at the bottom tells kids where to hold their trick-or-treat bags.

Residents can stand at the top of the stairs and send down treats to trick-or-treaters, who wait at the bottom with their bags to ensure physical distancing.

In true Halloween fashion, the pipes are spray-painted orange and spiralled with black duct tape to make them look more festive.

Two days later, he received more than 400 requests.

Adam: It's no treat to fall for COVID trick at Halloween

  Adam: It's no treat to fall for COVID trick at Halloween It should really come as no surprise that Ottawa and two other regions in Ontario have been put under partial shutdown. The surging numbers speak volumes, and that’s why we should treat the pandemic with all seriousness, leaving no room for doubt about what steps should be taken to fight the virus. That’s why Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam’s green-lighting of trick-or-treating, albeit with a caveat, comes as a disappointment. Tam says kids can go ahead with the Halloween tradition if they can physically distance and wear masks.

Plumbers install and repair water, drainage, gas, and other piping systems in kitchens and baths. They frequently examine and replace worn or broken pipes.

"I was definitely surprised at how quick it got attention," Burke said.

"I knew there would be some standing behind it, but to have the 400 in the two days was pretty outstanding."

The idea came after Burke saw an online post of a father in Ohio doing something similar.

With the goal of raising $10,000 for the local food bank, Burke decided to take that idea and use it in his own neighbourhood.

He has stopped taking requests, saying he's at capacity to get the 400 completed by Halloween evening, but the project can be easily done with some basic materials from the hardware store and a bit of DIY spirit.

All you need is five feet of four-inch PVC pipe and some zip ties, Burke said.
