Patrick's bridge counter is 5 inches by 10 inches. He observes, "since there are two pairs of eyelets on each the anchor brackets as well as on the aerial device further up the main cable and the lack of any tensioning apparatus, I'm led to believe tension can be adjusted by way of swapping cables (shorter or longer) between the ground based anchor bracket and the aerial device further up the main cables."
