Again and Again

Back in September, I put a net on the basketball hoop outside of school. The zip ties I hung it with are rated for 175 pounds, but somehow they keep breaking. I’ve fixed it twice already since September, and yesterday it was in sorry shape.

Hanging by three threads.

I went out quickly in the middle of the day yesterday and reconnected the net. Hopefully the zip ties will last. The time between fixes has gotten shorter each time. Maybe I should just commit to doing the work of installing a chain net.

    If you install a steel net, your heart will break extra-hard when it fails.

    Sorry to be a downer.

    All the outdoor nets I’ve seen are chain. I think you’ll need one of those.

    Brad, we have this or something very similar in our courtyard at work. Very durable.
