Favi 200" powered screen - $500 from sears - Hung in my pole barn

Hung my $500 shipped Favi 200" 1.3gain screen in my pole barn yesterday. Used the 14'X14' garage door frame and some $3 3/8 eye bolts and large locking carabiners I had laying around. I lifted it into place with a Amazon $25 purchased 4:1 big game rope hoist/lift (used to field dress game for hunters - mine was new though - no deer dressed with this one yet LOL) and attached the screen to the bracket with those 24" long foam covered wire twist ties (typically used to bundle up extension cords) that are $6 and typically found in the strap section of a BORG like Menards. I restrung it with a $10 100' braided rope from Harbor Freight as my ceiling trusses are at 16'. Hoist was attached with a small 10' length of 3/8 braided rope from HF as well $.99. Super sweet easy install and super strong. Frame is supported on pole barn poles and on a truss with angle iron strapping.

Here is me installing it. Ladder is a 8'-14' Little Giant Aerial Safety CAGE.
