Install the Final Hard Springs for a Trampoline.

I am 67 and my son is 30. When I couldn't stretch get the last springs fastened. I asked my son to help and he had trouble. I went to the garage to find something to make the job easier when I seen his caulking gun lying on the bench. A caulking gun is a ratchet and by using it backwards, as seen in the video I was able to hook all the springs with no problem and even by myself. There is another video here that shoes a guy hooking springs with a screwdriver. This is somewhat deceiving because it only works well when most of the tight springs are hooked. My ratchet system will hook the hardest springs.
By looking in the garage for a tool that would help me install the final springs on a trampoline.
