DIY Leg weight for "knees over toes guy" exercises!

I've only used PETG for these. Please use this or something stronger. With PETG and 70% infill, I could lift a 50lb weight with this. (I had to lift by hand because I cannot lift a 50lb weight with one leg).
I'd recommend 30lbs or less which I currently lift.
Excellent for Tibialis raises
Leg raises, side leg lifts, etc.
This design requires you to convert a snowboard boot binding.
This design fits a standard Burton baseplate which a lot of snowboard bindings use, but not all. If you can, I'd recommend going to a local ski/snowboard shop and asking if they have old bindings lying around (they usually do, especially if they have in-house rentals).
I have to thank: https://puddinflaps.wixsite.com/mysite for hooking me up with a few pairs of old bindings.
Bindings are designed for a larger boot. You may need to cut, modify, and shorten the strap system to fit your foot.
If there's enough demand or interest, I'll make a design for other binding types and kids binding size (which would fit an adult foot without modification).
Or I can make another design that holds a metal bolt and can support more than 50lb (but at this point consider a tib bar instead).
I've included two types of nuts and a washer. I can easily hand tighten the standard nut and do not need the washer, it's included in case you need it.
I hope this design helps you build something that helps with physical therapy, knee recovery, and strength. <3
