Last weekend, I was working on the screen door, adding a doggy door for our precocious pup when I realized the turnbuckle style door support might work.
So the girls and I went off to Ace and picked one up for $7. You can save a few bucks on Amazon, but I wanted to try it out.
It took less than an hour to drill a couple holes and bend the rod by hand and we had something that looked halfway decent. I put a little shrink tubing on the end and voila!
The first hook went on great with the wing nuts I also bought. As I tried to get the nut on the second hook, I realized yet again that I am not a smart man. For the turnbuckle to work, one side is reverse threaded...doh! Luckily a lifetime of being a slightly dumb guy had made me resourceful, so I cut the turnbuckle in half, which actually works out well as you get a lot of thread engagement and it's easier to reach from underneath.
The final product. We had about 6 inches of leftover from each rod, so it can be adapted to any tank mount.
