I put my strings in myself, I usually just lay the racquet on my tea cart, and then hold it flat on there with my foot. I weave the strings through by hand (sometimes I get confused and lose track) and then I hold one end in my teeth, and pull them tight with the tire iron from the trunk of my car.
