I used to hang more things from it, now that I have a blackbird with a shelf I don't hang much. I'm going to have to look into rigging up a holder for my phone. I like that idea.
Here's a pic with my string lights on it. My daughter loved writing in her journal before falling asleep with these on.
Here's a link to the lights- http://www.prestigeglassart.com/serv...powered/Detail
at 4 oz (that includes the 3aa's that power them) they aren't ultra light but my kids really like them and I don't do distance with the kids any way. They really light up an area and it makes setting up camp or cooking a meal in the dark super easy.
