    Tree Hugger Question

    Is there any reason not to slide the webbing through its own sewn loop?

    Nope no reason at all, that's what I do.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Not a problem. Just be careful if you pull cord through the loops; the cord can saw through the webbing if you have any friction.

    I use a Marlin spike hitch and toggles. The one problem with that method, I find, is I have to remove the toggles each time when I send the webbing back through itself. Do most people use Dutch Clips? Are they expensive?
    As a side note, Shug, I am watching Sling Blade on Netflix to understand your video references more.

    Also make sure the loops are well sewn.

    I don't know about most people, but I do know a lot of folks use the Dutch Clips. JacksrBetter sells them at $12.95/pair for 1" straps.

    I use Dutch Clips on one....a nacrabiner on the other. Just testing.
    Some use a caribiner.
    hope you enjoy Sling Blade . That Doyle Hargrave ain't no count.

    i like hardware... dutch clips or those black diamond 23'r biners.
    just easier to detach for adjustment, esp. around branches.

    How do you use a nacrabiner? I received two in a PIF (along with some amsteel), but I have no clue how to use them.
