This is a method for hanging banners from horizontal beams, limbs, or pipes so that it is difficult for others to get them down. It takes some doing, but the results can be impressive.
You will need ( tools or supplies ):
3 bundles of plastic-coated clothesline—Two of the lines need to be four times as long as your target pole is high. Refer to the end of the recipe for how to measure the height of the pole.
2 large molly bolts—Molly bolts must be able to fit through carabineers when folded but not when open
2 cheap hardware store carabineers
1 roll of duct tape
2 tube socks, bottoms filled with grain, pebbles, or any weight that can be tossed high
2 thin pieces of 2” by 1” wood to keep the banner straight—One should be about 8” longer than your banner, the other should be the same length as your banner.
2 pairs of sharp scissors (utility scissors are best)
2 people with good throwing arms… aim helps too!
