Tubular strap question
Was just thinking about how my HH cord is not good to be directly on the tree... hence the straps... Someone pointed out in another thread about keeping parts to a minimum so they dont get lost... great idea!
I am still looking to use that mooring cleat on my cord, but instead of wrapping the strap around the tree (extra parts) could I just slip a piece of the tubular webbing OVER the cord, and just slide it into place so it covers the tree?
As long as it works, it would then stay on the cord and not have to be and extra "part."
Thoughts on this?
I think the tubular webbing will just conform to the shape of the rope and not offer any less stress on the tree than the rope by itself.
Flat webbing will spread out the suspended weight over a greater surface area thereby reducing the PSI pressure against the tree at any point. The rope, or webbing wrapped around the rope, will have much less surface area against the tree increasing the PSI and the stress on the tree.
I kind of figured the same thing, but thought maybe someone here may have tried this... Thank you!
