From a bay the cable of necessary length is cut down, and on its ends (or one end) thimbles are put. Sometimes one of thimbles is provided with a special design by a hook, so-called snores. Then along the pendant are made musings or with the help of small musings are strengthened wooden, coned on a cone, bars that serve as support for the legs. The pendant with musings is used instead of a storm ladder and is attached to the shot or to the top of the boat beams.
