Default Where can i get a small hanging Gambrel?

Anyone know where I can get a small cheap gambrel? We clean some small hogs and the regular ones are too big to put their back legs in. The legs won't split apart enough.

Thanks

I have an adjustable one which would be perfect for small or large hogs. Legs are close till you pick them up then they spread. I'll sell it for $25, shipped on your dime.

Where are you located? Send me PM with email address or cell # and I can send pics.

Get an adjustable one so that you can get all of your game animals on it, big n small.

I use the pipe with the wire loop type
Not sure what they are called.

I have had the same one for twenty years.

Have kids? Have old bicycles? I have made several gambrels by bending up the ends of kids handle bars and drilling a hole in the center of the bars. Adding a eye bolt through bars with nut and lock washer. Waaalaaa! Gambrel!
Don't have a old bike, keep eyes open while you drive. Check out old trash piles.
