If you're using Amsteel or other cord from your hammock then I think the T-shaped PVC is a very neat solution. If you're using a 'biner like Gumbo & I use (because we don't care about weight
) then a straight toggle is just fine.
I think you're looking at two different variables (considering the biner vs. not biner options) like what I saw in your testing pictures. Using the biner, I'd say 100% of the weight is bearing down on the toggle.
Let's now look at my suspension: I run dogbones off the ends of my hammock. If I take the open end of my dogbone and loop it over the toggle, I suspect the load would probably be more on the Amsteel than on the toggle...this is just one of those things I'm gonna test.
Am I talking crazy, or does this stand to reason?
