I don't tie a knot, just slip the toggle through the loop on the webbing. Works great.
Dejoha, I know its simple but your mini caribiner Ideah for toggles is great, never would of though of it and you cant loose them. Im def using this ideah, thanks. I was going to use two aluminum toggles but I already lost one just useing it on a test hang in front of my apt. and figured their is no way I wouldent loose these in the woods. If you need to shorten your tree straps, have you tied a marlin spike hitch useing the mini biners?
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.
