Man creates belt to help him play Péntaque

About the solution

Because he has a disability, Victor can’t use his right hand to hold the steel balls while he is playing. So he developed a belt which can carry the steel balls, without Victor having to bend and grab the balls each time he has to, because when he throws in his left hand, he can’t hold the balls in his right hand.

So with this solution, he can carry the steel balls at hip height, without having the risk of falling.

The inventor produced the belt by using a cylinder to which he hung a bottom and a half chain link. He then passed a belt through and glued a rubber cloth to the bottom to dampen the sound of the ball as it falls into the pocket.

About the author

Victor, from Belgium, was born with a defect on his right hand. He created a device to help him play Pétanque, which is a game similar to bowling, where the goal is to toss or roll hollow steel balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet, while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground.
