    Hi guys,
    On this video of our new badminton cross stringer we show a string mover that we only made for our own use.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSIERNKYXIE&feature=youtu.be

    Quite some stringers asked us if this tool will be available.
    We do not think that this tool is good enough to supply it as a Stringway product, but we do understand that the double holes are a real pain in the neck for many badminton stringers.

    So we took time to find a better solution than the one in the video and we made a number of prototypes.

    Our wishes for such a tool are:
    - The stringer should not need much effort to pull the string aside.
    - It must be possible to lock the system in the “pulled away situation” so that the stringer has his hands free to pull the string through.

    To obtain a solution that meets those wishes the system must be fixed to the racquet (or machine) somehow to generate the supporting force.

    A number of proto’s that we made did not work at all, but the last one seems the work quite well.

    In this system the string mover is connected to the cross stringer, which offers the necessary support.

    The string mover consists of a little hook which is connected to a “hoist-system” with a string.
    The hook can reach all corners of the cross stringer.

    This video shows how it works.

    We would like to hear your opinions.

    Simple stringmover turn and push.

    Hi guys,
    Of course we understand that the string mover fixed to the cross stringer is a “heavy tool” .
    Because some agents were quite positive about the little string mover that was shown in the “cross stringer-video” we tried to improve it so that we like it also.
    This improvement seemed to be quite simple so hereby a little video that shows how it works.

    The trick of this system is that you free the hole by turning the system in combination with a little pushing.
