Drill Hole for Securing Rope

Using a 1/2-inch drill bit, drill a hole at the very bottom of the pipe. Next, tie a knot in one end of the rope, securing it snugly into the hole.

Cover Pipe With Rope

Starting with the knotted end, wrap the rope around the pipe starting at the bottom. Pull it tightly as you wrap, and cover the entire pipe. Tip: If you run out of rope, use a piece of tape to secure the wrapped section to the pipe, and start another length of the same rope. Repeat as many times as necessary to cover the entire pipe.

Install Angle Bracket

Align the top of an 8x10 angle bracket on the mark with the rest of the bracket beneath the pipe. Attach with #10 wood screws using a drill in each of the mounting bracket holes. Be careful not to overtighten and strip the plastic pipe.
