I flipped my daughter's stool over this morning and realized that this was a $3.99 stripping basket. all you need to do is add a belt.

I wonder how you can proclaim it's the best when you haven't used it.:confused:

Heads up thinking, right on!

I am sure you have used enough stripping baskets to know if it will work or not.

looks awesome. Not a whole lot of technology in those so I'm sure it would work well

Wow, my kids stand on this thing every night to brush their teeth and I never thought of it! Truly a lesson in looking at things a different way. Thanks Jacob - I'm in too, and will report back.

"Wow, my kids stand on this thing every night to brush their teeth"

And therein my be a slight negative in that something designed sturdy enough to hold a persons weight may be heavier than it need be as a stripping basket. My current $2 special would not hold anyone's weight standing on it. important when pqacking in suitcase for the airlines. It also looks to be a tad deeper than I might like. The depth of the basket becomes a limiting factor as to how deep you can wade and still keep it above water on your chest.

Good idea and good catch. But I would evaluate it with these two issues in mind.

Been using it for 5 or 6 years or so, cable ties inserted and epoxed in for line seperaters. Not too heavy at all. works great.

I've been using one as a stripping basket for quite a few years as well - slightly heavier than I'd like, but the size and shape are perfect.
