Wanted to share

I discovered this on the internet and wanted to share this with everyone. This is a really cool way to hang bird toys from the ceiling. It's the track used in track lighting. Before I would have to put a million tiny holes in the ceiling trying to find a joist and could only hang my toys wherever the joists were. With this method you only need two holes and no joist and you can hang your toys ss close or as far apart as you want and in any direction!!! The hardware that is used consists of an eye hook, two washers (small and large) and two nuts. You feed the smaller washer inside the track and the large on the outside and tighten the nuts. If anyone is interested in more detail I'd be happy to share.
