Strength of RL Toggle
I'm setting up a CRL for my tarp and wondering what the strength of a toggle for the prussek needs to be. I want to have the CRL be removable from the tarp, otherwise I'd tie the prussek through the tarp tie out and call it good. I assume that something like the toggles in this thread will work http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=35190
but how about something not as strong? Anyone have experience using something like a ball point pen tube, or crazier?
If you need toggles, ask, we all have extra!!
Yes a pen tube can work.
A lot of the forces are directed down the tieout and not directly on the toggle.
Or use a small carabiner on your prussik to clip the tarp to.
Thanks for the advice! Right now I'm using little carabiners that are for keychains. I figured they will hold up for awhile, but I'm kind of interested in making something that's goofy (like a pen) and will start a conversation about my ghetto-ness. Glad to know that my crazy idea may actually work and not leave me shivering and wet.
