  • Bounceboard puller?????

    I am in the process of making a bounceboard hoist system. Because it is too cramped and difficult to pull those things sometimes. Has anyone seen something like that?????
    Do you think it would be a good idea if it works???

    I am 6'3".....I can get my big a$$ in there and pull it.....

    Just get in sideways....roll the carpet around the angles.....pull it up........turn the plate sideways and take it out the front or the rear.....

    Block and tackle not needed.

      Come on, that's good exercise. Fold the carpet on top, bungee the fold, and grit your teeth for 15 seconds and it's over.

        I remember this being discussed before and I didn’t chime in. I am 6’3” 210 pounds and there isn’t a whole lot of room in there. I pull the cushion assembly out when I rebuild the pit. The entire round trip only takes 10 minutes and it creates a lot of room in the pit.

          Ausire....I have heard of a bounce plate puller that you stick through the space between the front and back bounce boards and turn 90 degrees. Then you just pull up and get each side off of the studs. I have never used it, so I do not know it's ease of use.

          I am 5'll" 240 lbs. I don't have that much trouble getting the bounce plate out. The hardest part is getting it off of the studs, then it just lifts right out. I even do it without taking the curtain down sometimes. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

          I know a guy who puts the 2 rollers on top of the bounce plate and lifts the whole thing out at once. Also, I know somebody who changed a carpet without taking the bounce plate out of the pit!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] He just lifted one end of the bounce plate up, slid the old carpet off of the end and somehow got the new carpet slid back over the bounce plate!! [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img] I did not witness this event, but I think it took him a long time. When we explained to him how to do it the right way, he felt kind of stupid. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

            I use the standard spring puller here with good success. I also use the puller to pull and set the front roller.

              <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Same here... just stuff the hook end of a spring puller between the double plates on the ball door side, turn it 90 degrees, and lift.

              I'm 6'4', 290lbs, and I manage to stuff my fat arse in there to get it in and out...
