Loading a Tube Chute Fig 325328

A 15- to 20-foot (4.5-6 m) length of 16-17-inch (4042.5 cm) lay-flat width of tubing can be loaded onto an 8-inch (20 cm) diameter by 20-inch (50 cm) long chute. If the diameter of the chute is too wide, it's hard to scrunch the tube on.

3.25: Measure and cut the length of tube you want to lay and add an extra two to three feet (60-90 cm) to tie off the ends. Drape the tube over the top of a sawhorse or chair and pull the tube over the top of the chute.

3.26: Lift the chute and clasp a Bungee cord around the tube and chute. Kaki likes to fold the fabric down like a cuff and then clasp it, as the fabric tends to unravel.

3.27: Put the tube chute back on the ground and scrunch the remaining tube down over the chute like a stocking.

3.28: When you get to the end, pull it through the opening of the chute and tie the bottom closed with a string or strand from the unraveled tubing. Your tube chute is now loaded.
