Also question is, how do you use crutches as stilts?
Place your feet where you would place your hands when you are using your crutches properly. Place your hands on the pegs of your crutches. The crutches should be upside down. If you are having trouble getting onto your stilts, practice by using a wall and slowly taking a few steps forward.
Also, how do stilts work? Hand-held string stilts (also known as tin can or bucket stilts) are platforms with strings attached to them. The platforms, most commonly made of tin cans or small plastic upturned buckets hold the stilt walker's weight while the strings are used to pull the cans to the feet as they take a step.
