Thread: DIY Hangle

  1. #1

    DIY Hangle

    For lack of a better name. I made this Hangle in about 5 minutes at no cost and it is very light. Though others may use a similar idea.

    Materials:

    fast food straw
    small piece of flat plastic (from a food container)
    double sided tape
    mason's line
    safety pin (to keep it from sliding down the line)

    Tools

    Scissors
    protractor (to measure angle)
    Sharpie (I used red for contrast)

    The angle is 60 degrees from the top edge. The pictures are in my kitchen with 7/64 amsteel strung between two chairs.

    Dutch makes great gear, I am almost embarrassed to use the same name for this "device."

    Yes, it is based on an idea from a Dutch gear product.
