# 0 s biners? Strong enough? No criticism, just wondering since I am looking for some new binder/hooks too for tarp setup.
I used to use 550 paracord with some clips I got from a boating application (prussiks to adjust the tarp). I changed the cord and the hooks are too big...(heavy).
S biners and Figure 9's are relatively easy to get around here (Holland - The Netherlands [Europe]).
Dutch ware (the Hammock Dutch!) is on the shopping list too, but for now that would only make Customs happy with import taxes
dust lightly with talc powder and the silicone won't stick anymore
My set-up is designed with the following for "firebreaks": 'biner-->shock cord tensioners-->tie-outs-->ridgeline. That way, the easiest things to replace in the field break before the harder things, with the tarp being the last thing to go. If I get all the way to the tarp ripping, well, I've got bigger worries than just the tarp!
