Made some aiders to jug after cleaning the pitch, after not wanting to bring full ladders just for jugging. Anyway I figured I'd I post some photos to show how it was done in case anyone else wanted to make some on the cheap.

2 pack of cam buckle tie downs from harbor freight- $3.99
14 feet of tubular webbing - $5
1 pack of tenacious tape- $5.75

Other supplies I used but already had:
Electrical tape
Wire- I used CAT5 wire that went bad but you could find something at the hardware store for under a buck probably.

Probably pretty self explanitory from the final photo but I cut webbing to size and then threaded the cam buckle straps through to reinforce the clip-in point and foot loop.

the one on the left is to show how the buckle should be threaded before tying a knot for the clip in.

I electrical taped 2 pieces of wire together to hold the footloops open and threaded them through the tubular.

Afterward I added tenacious tape to the footloops to protect the webbing a bit.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
