Very Simple Weight Plate Post
I receive a lot of requests on how to attach weight plates to the Wench. The following instructions explain a very simple, low/no cost set up that will allow you to attach weight plates to any hanging device.
- Attach a 10”-12” length of rope to a peg or a wood slat approximately 5”-7” in length.
(If you are not creating a rope 'loop', consider a smaller length of rope - approximately 5”-8”)
- Make sure the rope attaches to the wood at its center
(Drilling a hole and threading the rope through helps. You may also notch a deep groove around the circumference of the wood at it's center)
- Attach an S-hook to the opposite end of the rope loop. You may want to permanently close the end of the hook that attaches to the rope
- Attach the open end of the S-hook to the loop/strap of your hanging device.
*Be sure that either your S-hook or your wood peg/slat is thin enough to thread through the center hole of your weight plates.
This will allow you to add or subtract weight plates as needed with relative ease.
