    Basement camping TD stand style

    Here is my TD stand. I slept in it last night and had no problems other than having to move furniture around to find a place to put everything.

    Instead of a shackle (because we couldn't find one that fit in the hinge holes) we used two quick links on each end. 3/16 inch zinc. They work really well and they said they hold a lot...can't remember the exact amount, but I felt very confident using them.

    I started out with 10 ft and had to take 16 inches off it!

    That pipe clamp is clever.

    Nice work!
