Step 4: Distributing the load
Find some sort of plastic packaging that is fairly sturdy, here I show the use of a cookie container. Using the sharpie mark an oval appropriately sized to the area of the styrofoam you wish to protect. Then using some scissors, cut the oval out (see 2nd photo).
The third photo shows the load distributor in place. You will see how this works with the zip ties in a later step.
