    What to call speed hook/hammock anchor style suspensions?

    A new type of suspension has been introduced by Dutch and Hammock Fan where a device is used to cinch an amsteel lead to itself. While we can always refer to this suspension by the product used, I don't think there is a generalized name for this type of suspension yet.

    I was thinking about it, and thought an appropriate name would be a "Cleat" suspension. Since the devices work similar to cleat's on sailing ships.

    Thoughts?

    Speed hook works for me. Simple. Quick. People know what you're talking about. Draws a quick image in your head.

    Cleat sounds right to me.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    I agree with cleat. It works on the same principle as a rope cleat, might as well call it a "cleat-type suspension."

    I'm fact, I'm gonna start calling it that. BAM!

    I would just put it in line with "suspense system" because you never know what Dutch is going to come up with next!

    I suppose cleat could work, as an acronym of Certainly Little Extra Added Titanium.

    Don't like acronyms ? How about an abbreviation of Single Line Hammock Hanger....SiLi HaHa !


    I'm not very funny, but I'm trying to compensate for a complete lack of personality !
