We have fun sledding in our back yard but we have steep hill that ends at the street. So a safety net would be a good idea. I decided to see if I could make one.
I did some research on line. YouTube has many net making instruction video so I used a combination of some of them to make my net.
The rope I used was from the Dollar Store.
Step 1: How I made the Shuttle.
I took the roll of rope and used some rubber bands to hold it together as I make the net. Worked very well just pull to release some rope.
As for the mesh stick I used a piece of wood paneling I had and sanded the edges smooth. pic 5
