Simple OTS hanging devise
Well I posted a thread a few weeks ago asking about the ways to hang OTS. It seems that most guys just throw a rope over the shoulder with a towel and that’s it. There is also some other ways but they seem more complicated so I set out to find a more simple way. The big problem with hanging over the shoulder is the weight makes the shoulder very tired and add to that a towel and you have resistance. I don’t think there is anyway to take the pressure off the body and still be able to walk around but you need to be as comfortable as possible when hanging. My solution was to be able to hang sitting and solve the obvious problems with the pressure on the shoulders.
Here’s what I can up with and it’s so simple and cost about $3. I call it the Roll Bar. I went to Home Depot and bought a 10’ piece of 1” PVC pipe and 2-90 degree fittings. I cut a 12”-13” piece length from the main piece and cut the remainder piece into which should leave you 2 sections about 4 1/2 feet long. You don’t even have to glue it. After you put the pieces together to make the roll bar, get a kitchen chair and tie it to the back of the chair. That’s all there is to it. The roll bar should be over your head about a foot and when you throw the rope over it there is little resistance.
Now if you want a modified version for hanging SO just get 2 couplings and cut the two long sticks to what ever length you want so it will stand between your legs at the height you want. When you want to hang SO just separate the long sticks at the couplings and hold the roll bar between your legs and there you go. You will have to hold the roll bar while hanging or it wants to move towards your body. When you finish you can take the whole thing apart and store it away.
Let me know what you think.
