Introduction: Keluang String : a Camper's String Hack

About: From a DIY enthusiast to a DIY gardener 🍓

Storage space is a luxury for camper and that's the problem I had faced in one of the trips.

Here, I show how to use a string to hang mostly of your camping items and save some space.

Step 1: Items

    This items are easily buy from a fishing store

    1. A nylon string
    2. A hook - not a fishing hook ;)
    3. A basic skill to tie a knot (or a few)

    Step 2: The Knots

    Firstly, I make a few knots on the string.

    Step 3: The End Knot

    I also make a knot at the end of the string so that I can attach the hook.

    Step 4: The Hanging

    It is a simple principle of hanging item on the Keluang String. I insert the upper bottle into the knot and make a few twist to tighten the grip. For the other items, I just slide through the knot.

    Step 5: The Setup

    1. I hook the end at a tree branch.
    2. I hang a few items such as the cooking utensils, a bottle of shampoo, black pepper bottle, drinking bottle and two cooking pan.
    3. There are many items you can hang using the Keluang String.
    4. And lastly but not least, I can fit the string in my camping backpack's pocket for the next camping trip.

    HAPPY MAKING!

      Thank you so much for this as it won't be long until I move to the desert and will need these kinds of tips as campers and tents has not much storage. Once again thank you from the bottom of my heart

      Nice, simple idea; when most people camp, they put everything on the ground and get tons of ants and bugs but this avoids that.

      Yea, a camper has a limited items to carry with them and we tend to use whatever necessary to serve the purpose :)
      Another trick is you can hoist the string with the things attached high off the ground to prevent any land-walking scavengers (e.g. bears) from eating your foods :D
