Weight method with the Retainer using Nylon screws or Magnet
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.
When using a Magnet connection washers or a steel ball bearing can be used for weight.
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.
This a 2 inch steel ball bearing the weight is about 1.3 lbs.
this is okay to use when I am standing in one area for a long period of time.
Some walking it okay but moving fast will cause the weight to swing.
Steel ball bearings come in all sizes and weight. To compare a 2 inch to a 1 inch. The 2 inch is 1.3 lbs and th one 1 inch is only around 3 oz
2 inch steel ball ( 19 oz )
