It's good to see several hangers using this setup. After I first gave it a try and posted photos, it seemed to take a long time before others started to adopt the aluminum poles.
gmcttr and the rest have inspired some followers.
Those who experimented with the details; imaged+explained
early military-alum-pole-tripods have made a path to follow.
We have the alum poles for 3 tripods+2 ridgepoles. Snapbuttons have been ordered from graingers.
The lashing is very compelling. A beautiful thing. Strong and basic. Some good images
here that demonstrate it well.
Yet . . . I am drawn to the hardware.
Agfadoc has imaged+explained
Have some new-old-stock eyebolts ( surplus from a project 20yrs ago ).
Currently : comtemplating . . .
Working on an alum-turtlelady
stand or an alum-artjrk-hardware-turtlelady
as agfadoc did.

Will you "explain+image"
