A third hand for high places

Recommended Posts

I got this idea from J. Ponto. 


In the past I have had problems seizing or attaching blocks to spars or other places that are high up on the ship.

I took an old desk lamp, gutted the cord and socket and replaced that with some extensions and a special fixture on top.

I had this small Sony tripod that I never use, took off the legs and adapted it to a small C-clamp. Now I have numerous ways of twisting, turning and reaching those awkward places with a hemostat or other tool that clamps as shown above. In order to use it at deck level, I simply take off one or two of the extensions.

Thanks Ponto.
