Hi all, new to the forum but not new to sewing and am about to make myself and hubby some hammocks for backpacking.
I know nothing about climbing equipment but after reading the DIY threads the caribiners have to be able to hold 1000lbs? Is this correct?
Would this work for holding the hammock? I am not sure what the measurements are? kN = kilonewtons? lbf = foot pounds of pressure? Ahhh I hated college physics!
Weight: 50 g (1.8 oz)
Closed Gate Strength: 24 kN (5395 lbf)
Open Gate Strength: 7 kN (1574 lbf)
Minor Axis Strength: 7 kN (1574 lbf)
