Step 3: Get the Hook

You can use just about any hook you want, but I used one from an old wire hanger. Cut about an inch bellow the end of the twisty base of the hook. Then take pliers and bend the remaining prongs up (see picture two).
<p>I tried this, but pants slip right off because the center section is (a) too smooth, and (b) will simply roll allowing the pants to roll off. So, two small improvements.</p><p>1. Cut a notch in both ends of the center section for the rope to fit into preventing the roll. I used my Dremel tool, but you could do the same with a hack saw or file.</p><p>2. Add some non-slip tape to prevent pants from slipping on the smooth PVC. I used some cheap self-adherent tape from Walgreens.</p>
I love this and I'm thinking of some modifications. I would like to try it with small bamboo and I'm thinking of making the hook have an eye in the bottom so that it always renders to the balance point. I would have to make sure the knot stayed away from the hook and the corners so it would render equally.
Go for it! One of the cool things about this design is how easily it can be reconfigured. Please post a pic of the finished thing if you don't mind!
Thanks! I'm glad you like it!
Oh, now I get it! What a great idea!
