Rope Assembly

Rope Setup

The ball is lowered with a long piece of rope/twine. The stuff I used was made from hemp, purchased from the craft store. Yoyo string is a great option. The string should be roughly 47-inches (119cm) in length – This will cover most of the 610mm long aluminum extrusion.

Tip: I used a drop of super glue to seal the tips, this prevents the strands from fraying.

Tie Rope End

A jump ring is tied to one end of the string. Any 6-10mm diameter jump rings will do. These are commonly used for jewelry crafting.
