Thread: Help looking for an ultra lightweight rib spreader.

  1. #1

    Help looking for an ultra lightweight rib spreader.

    As above but there is a catch. It will double up to spread the legs when doing a suspended field gralloch where each hock is suspended from cable to a pulley. Looking for a 'lifehack' type solution. What do you use?

    Length of rigid plastic pipe with a notch cut in each end?

    Not my idea but I know that works for Colin (SolwayStalker). Can't think of any reason it couldn't also be used as you describe to keep legs spread when on a hoist.

    I use white plastic pipe as used for domestic plumbing. See some here in photo number 5:

    Cross cut it at 45 degrees both ways and you end up with two points on each end. Very cheap, lightweight but strong and also dishwasher safe!
    Comes in various diameters to suit size of animal/length. It would do for what you are after.

    Cut a 30mm hazel wand and trim to size then notch as Ray Mears is all but certain to.

    Just to prove this was no "Gun Shop Guru" throwaway remark I'll show you my truly mini deer pulley in action that uses 4mm parachord.

    I've made up some chest spreaders from blue water pipe cut to size and with a V notch in either end - made 2 sizes - one for small deer (roe/muntjac/CWD) and a larger one for red/fallow/sika. They work a treat and are easy to clean as well as being free!
