    Well all done sewing and rigging. So here are the pics. I am loving the chainlinks and cinch buckles.

    bakeel, you've got those buckles threaded backwards. they may still hold ok, but they were designed to be threaded from the other side.(with the logo covered)

    Oh they are? I got the same buckles from Arrowhead with links and works great without having to tie off stops. Good to know I have it backwards, Ill change it over. I guess here is a suggestion for adding notes to websites like this or we end up doing it wrong (even though it still works!)


    NOTE: I just went downstairs to check the buckles. Apparently without realizing it, I happened to loop it thru the right way. But it was just a guess that seemed to make sense to me. Still, probably a good idea to have this kind of info- like the picture/tutorials on AHE site- available from whoever is also selling them

    In playing around with these buckles for several weeks before ordering them in for stock I tried threading them both directions and could not get them to slip or slide no matter the weight load I put on them. I feel confident that no matter which way they are threaded they will hold--Brandon may have experience to the contrary(Do share if I have missed something), but in my testing they have done remarkably well with everything I have thrown at them.

    Jerry I thought about that but I am not worried about the extra weight of the beaners. I also don't want to have to fight to fish the webbing through the cinch buckle in the cold/rain/inclement weather when my finger are cold or wet. Plus if I have gloves on due to bad weather it could make it a little harder to fish the webbing through. I will sacrifice a little weight for some ease. I have yet to test my set up other than tugging/hanging/pulling in my office. I will have a better report after the PB Hang.

    Umm, if you used either a carabiner or Dutch Clip to connect the end of the webbing loop to itself around the tree, you wont have to undo the buckle...

    i never had them slip due to being threaded backwards, but that's just what i was told by the manufactuer.

    if you look close, one side of the moving part has a shorter "ear" on it. threading them backwards puts more force on the side with the short ear i believe. and if you look at the design, it appears to have more surface area/friction when threaded the right way.

    also keep in mind that they can slip (i've had them slip personally) if the webbing isn't stacked reasonably on top of eachother. if the webbing is in a severe "v" it can slip. if it's just slightly off it probably won't. it's pretty easy to just make sure the strands are "stacked" as you finish making an adjustment, but if you just yank on it without paying any attention, 1" webbing can go into a "v" and then slip once weighted. just watch what you're doing when making the adjustment and there will be no issue

    Jerry has a good point. It will be easier to put have the buckle tied to the buckle and put the biner on the end of the webbing. Then you just go around teh tree and click it. No threading involved. But if you like it this way then by all means do it the way you lke best.
