Simple Homemade Clamping Hanger
Hey guys. This was originally part of a response to the CABLE CLAMP buy what size (size)? thread, but thought if anyone was curious it would be easier to find if it had it’s own thread.
It’s a simple, quick opening clamp I’ve tried for hanging. All you need is a medium cable clamp, a hot glue gun, and some string. The glue gun is used to “build up” the inside of the clamp to create the two sides of the clamp, much like two dowels I’ve seen on other clamping systems.
The hot glue can be molded and smoothed out with the tip of the glue gun or smoothed further with a heat gun or over a burner on the stove (just don’t melt the plastic, or burn yourself!). The hot glue cools quite rigid.
The string is attatched permanently to one side of the clamp then looped through the weight you are using and then a loop on the other end of the string slides over the handle on other side of the clamp.
