    Oh – how to describe that?

    The rope is in one piece and has its original length.

    The hook is 220 cm above ground and 60cm above the ring. The distance from ring to the neck is 20 to 25 cm (adjust to preferred comfort angle). The distance between the front knot to the ring is 90 cm.

    The ring has eight numbered holes (1-8). The numbered side points forward.

    You stand in front of the chair and have tightened the rope to the front left side of the chair.

    You see that the ring numbers 1 to 4 are to the right and the ring numbers 5 to 8 are to the left

    So now I comes: From front through 6, then through 8, then over the ring to the neck(over). From the neck(under) through 5 -but from the front-, then through 7 and finaly up to the hook.

    Now you have to do the same in opposite order for the right side and finally tighten the rope to the front right side of the chair.

    How much can I hold? At least 100 kg.

    Hello,

    For me, as a person with tecnical skills, it was a puzzle to imagen how it’s strung up in detail
    But we got it. Imported is that you use a 5 meter cord with ( the original cord was to short ) the same diameter, 12mm, with a minimum of resilience.

    I have made some pictures of it.
