Finally, a wind screen support system that I like

I’ve fooled around with rigging up a wind screen for my canister stove for years and never really came up with a method that I liked. Mostly it took too long to set up and was somewhat complicated. I am now trying this design which seems to work well.

A piece of aluminum flashing with holes drilled in strategic places is used as a screen and the support wires are attached to the stove with small machine screws and wing nuts.
The different spaced holes allows for adjusting the screen for differant sized pots and the support wires can slide in and out for adjustment. The screen stays in place by tesnsion and is stopped from sliding inward by the shorter side of the support wire which is bent in half and held by the washers and wing nut. The support wires can be simply folded over and stay attached to the stove for storage and the whole thing: stove, windscreen, and butane canister fits neatly in a GSI 1.25 qt boiler.
