Step 4b. Footrest option #2
The footrests for option #2 are the same as in option #1 (shown on the previous page) except each footrest has ONLY ONE HOLE instead of two.
They also have a metal ‘wrap around’ plate which is a made out of a galvanized joist hanger that has had its angled sides made flat.
For each option #2 footrest use a 2″ x 5″ (50 mm x 125mm) galvanized joist hanger. If you can only purchase longer joist hangers, then cut to suit.
Straighten the sides as shown in the photos below.
It is then a matter of fixing the joist hangers to the top of the footrests. Wrap each joist hanger around a leg (loosely) and nail the sides of the joist hanger to the top of a footrest as shown in the photos below. Ensure that the footrest is able to slide with ease, up and down the stilt leg.
