Compression posts

Anyone have a quick and effective way of attaching lanterns or other hanging devices from metal compression posts inside the cabin?

I have used large stainless steel clamps inside a "fabric" (looks less industrial) ring. S hooks placed where you want them to hang, as you tighten up the clamp

Large tywraps work as well.

I have seen some rope work, using a hitch to keep the load from sliding that was awesome as it integrated hangers and loops...looked very salty. On a similar note, I have seen rope wound from bottom to top to cover a badly scratched post, again with hangers and loops integrated as it was wound up the post.

For smaller loads the 3M double side tape and removable picture hangers work very well

As long as you know where any wires are (or aren't) don't see anything wrong with mounting a bracket with fasteners like you would on a mast or any other location.
