This also lets one use the original whoopie hook that Dutch spliced into the whoopie. Or do it the way in the video and larks head the hook into the fixed end of the whoopie.
BTW- Putting the little Dutch hooks on chains as well as the Whoopie Hooks makes them easier to find when dropped and also has a ton of versatility. I use bright yellow chains!
Hooks on chains. Awesome versatility. Of course, the chain with a Lark's head is not as good as a chain with a whoopie hook nicely spiced into it. I can't wait to order a bunch of those! [you don't really need to sleep do you, Dutch]??
Great videos...keep em coming!
Some photos for making the Universal Dutch Clip using Whoopie Hooks. This method keeps the connection near the tree. Again it would be better to have the hooks spliced into the chains rather than girth hitched onto the chain. I also have found that the UDC is not as easy to use as the Dutch Clip and if I am using my 1" straps, I'd probably stick with the Dutch Clip.
Note that it also works with the strap by clipping it to itself:
Or just used as a loop:
Of note: What this also means is a spare whoopie sling with a dutch whoopie hook can also serve as a tree hugger extension that is adjustable. Just larks head the fixed end of the whoopie to the tree hugger, wrap around the tree, and then clip to the whoopie that is attached to the other end.
