3 3-5 inch fishing hooks tied together with lots of duct tape then tie some shark fishing line on them works well enough to hold up a person

if  you throw it right and the tab attaches to the floss(the string circles a couple times and the soda tab hooks onto the string) it will divert the weight to the weight will be diverted to the string and the tab wont break it will only hold the string in place.

amakerguy (author)jjjjake2009-01-01

no it can NOT hold you up only the floss can but not the soda tab.

Yep cause floss can hold the weight of a human body.
