I know someone made their own last year. I may end up buying a 3 pack but I like the idea of making my own without breaking my neck \:\)

Anyone have some links to purchase needed materials and. A link for the knot?
I think it is called prusset?

Thanks!

I made some last year and used rock climbing rope. Really wasn't any cheaper than buying them. Just the satisfaction of DIY.

I used 5/8 derby rope and some 3/8 cheaper rope from lowes. But climbing grade rope is more advisable. The derby rope seems great but the cheap rope is fraying a bit, I may switch to paracord. The idea is that the rope with the prusik knot is smaller diameter than the main line. Add a caribiner to the end of the small rope and hook up to your harness. Very simple

I looked into doing them myself too and it wasn't going to be any cheaper than the 3pack on amazon
