Gambrel? (device for hanging animals to eviscerate / butcher).

Spreader bar for lifting items without crushing the sides?

when not pulling on the fencing, i'll bet it could double as a coat rack.

Heck of a key rack to have at the back door.  Or a hammock hanger (one of two) for big boys.

Here's my version of it.
It's 3 lumps of decent pipe I think about 1", a piece of 1/4" plate 2" wide. Welded two pipes to the plate side-by-side, drilled, tapped, used some high-tensile (fine pitch) bolts, welded handles on, and a 3rd piece of pipe that sits "inside" the grove made by the first two.



In use, it doesn't damage the mesh or pull on the verticals, and lets me get lots more tension than the hook style.

Ross;

I built  a 2x4 inch lumber version off that bad boy. Worked treat and did not distort the wire or uprights. Design was in The Mother Earth News or some other homesteader type magazine.  You remember those, don't you?

Great minds stink alike I guess  :o
