hi everyone ,

BusterLeroy here I am a double bilateral below the knee amputee
and have a implanted defibulater after quad bypass so to say limited physically
can be an understatement some days ...
so i spend a bit of time in a wheelchair even though i have prosthetic legs
they are hard to balance and bend over on so I throw my kneepads on and get
too my many projects ...

Todays Project Hang a Inline Fan With a Large Carbon Filter !!!

step 1 . medicate !!!

step 2 . lay out the fan and filter in the bottom of the tent ...

step 3 . wrap bungee cords around the fan and filter about 3 inches from ends ...

step 4 . hook the clips of my ratchet style light hangers to the bungee cords ...

step 5 . then slowly work one side then the other till the fan fan is close to where
you want it ... i decided to use the back bar of the tent frame ...

step 6. then run zip ties around the bottom plate of the fan and thru the metal bands
on my filter ...don't tighten them all the way down ...

step 7. now run more zip ties around the bar and thru the zip ties you put on the fan
and filters ... now is a good time to run your cord for the fan thru the zip ties ...

step 8. now slowly go thru and tighten the zip ties up a little at a time and you wind
up with something like this ...

step 9. medicate and pat yourself on the back for a job well done !!!

Hope This Helps Another Not So Physical Person to do the Possible !!!

Also I have to give Credit and Love to everyone in Ask Teddy…

Thanks TeddysHead , ProffesorPotSnob , BigPapa ,KnuckleDragger !!!

And a Shout out to my new mentor Dog
as he will be taking me under his wing !!!

As this is a mixture of all the great ideas they came up
with …

You are an awesome group of people !!!

wish I had seen this tutorial before I decided my tent frame was too flimsy to try hanging a fan and filter from. I ended up putting the fan in a tote full of insulation and mounted the filter on the exhaust side of the fan, the intake side is attached to the tent with ducting. it is quieter this way though and I have more room to raise the lights. still,it would have saved a lot of extra work if I had come here first.
