Weight method with the Retainer using Nylon screws and washers
I use 1 1/4 inch OD by 1/4 inch ID stainless steel washers. Any washer can be used but I find stainless steel to work great since there is no chance of rust and are just cleaner to work with.
Medical tape is a good way to keep your stacks of washers from turning you into a human slot machine if the wing nut came loose and all the loose washer fell to the floor.
The nylon screws that come with the Reatainer can be used for spacers or steel washers for weight.
As you can see in these pictures the 2 inch nylon screw will provide 5.3 oz of weight and the 3 inch screw gives 10.6 oz of weight.
Using tape is a much more covenant way to use washers. I just make stakes of different weight and can use what ever amount I want quickly.
Caution! Restoring too aggressively can lead to injuries such as skin tears and bruising or possible other damaging injuries that may be more serious. Always use your own judgment on how you choose to restore. Pain is not part of restoring.
