I customize my line set winders, so that I can clip them neatly to the lower spreader bar for transport or display.
The details are the same for each winder. I mount a plastic clip on each end of the winder, securing them with nylon
nuts and screws. Be sure to use nylon nuts and screws, so they can't scratch the spreader bar.
Also, I use a 12" long piece of ribbon as a wind gauge. I attach it to one hand strap of my line set, to quickly detect
a change of wind direction or air speed while flying.
