2. A stout piece of wire is wrapped around the exposed screw head (two or three times) 4" of wire left out ...
3. Bend a "U" in the wire so you can hang the tail wheel on it.

Trick is using wire that's bendable and stout enough to hold the plane.
Those lawn sprinkler flags at Home Depot have perfect wire and they're cheap.

I've been hanging to 5lb planes this way without a problem.

Thanks D-Man. If ya think about it post a picture but I think I can manage without one. Appreciate it.
