- Hook the end of each rope to the metal hanger.
- Make a knot of fixed loop type every 15 - 20cm.

- Cut the head of a metal hanger, and put it aside. Make hooks at each end of the remaining piece.
- Pass this piece in the loops at the extremities of the vertical cords; it will be the foot of the assembly.
