Door Pegs / Stirrups

So I am 6’ 4” and wanted some extra length to stretch my feet out on, so I had been looking around online for some door pegs but they all seemed to high for me to put my leg up on so I decided to build my own.

Materials Used:
1. 3/8” x 4” Stainless steel eyebolt (mine came with a nut)
2. 2 – 3/8” washers (on the thinner side)
3. 1 - 3/8” hex caped nut
4. About 3’ of 1” tubular webbing (purchased at my local hiking store)
(I bought 10’ since it was .42 cents a foot so id have extra, and you want to get the tubular…. trust me it feels a lot better on the bare feet!!! And it’s a lot stronger)
5. Scissors, a lighter, and electrical tape

So I basically made stirrups out of the webbing that I bought. I put the eyebolt in the bottom hinge upside down then figured out where I needed to put the tape so It wouldn’t scratch the paint, wrapped it around the eye a couple of times, then I just made a loop out of the webbing, figured out how long I wanted my foot to hang outside the door, and then fed the loop through the eyebolt.

The knot was big enough that it won’t slip out of the eyebolt. And then Playing around with it I figured out that when I wouldn’t be using the strap, it neatly tucked back and hung on the peg that the door hinge strap attaches to so it wont blow around when its not in use.

Whenever you cut the strap you want to burn the end of the strap so that it won’t unravel, just a little fyi.

If you want to make one for both sides just double the quantities of the eyebolt, the washers, the hex cap nut, and webbing ( I would get 6’ to be safe and not have much extra. You wouldn’t have to get 10’ if you wouldn’t want the extra like me.)
