It is a bit bouncy but the idea is just to sit out there and enjoy the view. I tried not to go with legs because they would need to be adjustable to cope with uneven ground and also because the door needs holding down against the springs when there is no weight on it; that's what the slot arrangement on the stays does. The stays are 6mm steel in tension so they should be strong enough and the hinge is new (the old one was rusty and broke). It is 20mm solid bar through thick walled pipe so also pretty substantial. I'll be keeping an eye on it... I could add chains down to the corners but they would be a pain to stow when travelling. Maybe some quite thin stainless wires that just clip on and removed completely when not needed?
