Re: Safety netting for kids

Our old I-28 has a single lifeline and an aluminum toe rail with regularly spaced openings. After having a failure I replaced the coated ss wire with 1/4" Amsteel. Any reason I shouldn't simply "thread / weave" directly into the life line a smaller diameter Amsteel that would connect to the toe rail the with a tight enough crossing pattern to keep "stuff" from heading over the side?
