For a while I have wanted to hang using these high strength rubber bands I have (kind of like thera bands except even larger, and more heavy duty). I tried hanging SO using them with my wench a couple times, but the problem was I could never gage how much resistance I was using, and my skin wasn’t ready for what I ended up doing.
Recently I figured I could use one of those Fish-hang scales. Now I have a way of determining how much pull I am using in pounds. The thing is great, I got it at Walmart, and it was only a couple bucks. It makes hanging So, and at upward angles really easy, and you don’t have to fiddle with making pulley systems, hanging weight over your shoulder, and dealing with friction. Instead of using the special rubber bands I have, I figured people could use bungee cords, (like for tieing luggage to your car).
I don’t know if anyone has thought of this before, but I just thought I would share.
