    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

    was playing with this over at my friend's house


    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.

    well if you think about it the soda tab probably could hold you up.........................I would sit here for about an hour typing how you could make it hold you up ill put it in short form..........glue all around it
