    The proper use of a Dutch Clip video

    I made a video showing how to safely use a dutch clip but it also pertains to other attachment points. When done correctly, there is little pressure on the point where the clip meets the webbing.

    Good job. It's always nice to get more safety info out there for the many new hangers.

    Hope to see you at HangCon 2017.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    This should probably be a sticky thread.

    I have been doing the exact opposite as Dutch suggests. He is correct that the way he does it is less stressful on the webbing and buckle. I do it to move the hammock to the back of the tarp leaving more room on the side of the tarp I get out on. I do the same thing with the tarp only in the opposite direction moving the tarp forward. That leaves the hammock ridge line hanging not directly below the tarp ridge line and gives me more living space on the side of the hammock I get out on.

    Couldn't you just reverse your process, and move the tarp to the other side?

    That video is perfect. Thanks Dutch. The last two days of testing I have been more focused on making sure that line is straight as possible off the tree and not riding against the clip. I have had two very successful nights of hang testing. Of course one with a dutch clip and using my old strap with a Marlin spike hitch. At least I get to practice
