So after having collecting the hardware I ended up with something like this…
Today was about perfect to try it for the first time so off I went and within the next fifteen minutes or so I was at the beach ready to set it all up.
The first thing was to attach the gadget to a fence pole.
After some fiddling with the lines, I managed to thread all four of them through the “eyes” soon ready to attach the kite to the lines.
Then all left to do was hooking the kite up and start flying!
…and it does look pretty good, doesn’t it?
But unfortunately it didn’t work out at all. 🙁
There was way too much friction on the lines. I tried some adjusting, but wasn’t able to work it out. Too much friction.
So I have to do something to remedy this. I’ll try to increase the size of it all to have the “eyes” further apart. I’ll also try to lubricate the “eyes” for less friction.
…and if anyone have other ideas, please let me know in the comment field below!
