Step 5. Set up my tripod. I already tested the tripod last year for 795.5 lbs. It should handle this pumpkin. I don't use a lifting ring. Fourteen doubled poly twines up to the hook. It's a 200 lb line. It should be able to hold 200 lbs x 28 strands = 5600 lbs. The poly line might be weaker at the knots... but I'd say its close to a 10 x safety margin on this job!

Much better than past years...
