Heating PVC Pipe for fulcrum hanging

I’ve been using a PVC pipe for my fulcrum hanging sets and lately I’ve been experimenting with wrapping the pipe in a heating pad for 5-10 minutes prior to the hanging sets, then using the same heating pad on top, while the heated pipe heats the rest. Just wanted to share, I’m liking it so far. It can get pretty hot, so don’t wrap it too tight.
