Hangers coming off

Post by illona »

Hey all, just a word of warning. I noticed about a month ago that the hanger in the middle of Firestarter is off. It used to have a perma-draw in it (for ease of cleaning) which I am assuming spun the hanger off in one of the recent storms (and probably landed in the swamp below). This happened on Thruster as well when draws were left up while someone was working it. The wind just whips the draws around and loosens the hanger. Fortunately, in the case of Thruster, we found the draw, hanger and nut and put it back up on the route.

yikes didn't know this could happen! needless to say it is incumbent on people leaving draws on projects to regularly check that nuts are still well fastened and also when they remove their draws.

So, when you remove your draw(er)s, always make sure your nuts are well fastened :shock:
