    Death of the Carabiner... Button knot Grappler's Hitch.

    Although this video by Jeff Myers has been linked elsewhere, it deserves mentioning again (and again) because this particular item represents the pinnacle of simplicity for this application. And Myers's video is also the best tutorial for tying a button knot that I have seen to date.

    The advantages of this tree clip button knot (*Grappler's Hitch made with button knot*) are 1) it remains with the tree strap and cannot get lost, 2) it is lightweight, around 4-6 grams with Amsteel, and around 1.5-3 grams with Dynaglide, and 3) it is much easier to engage and release than the standard soft shackle, especially when wet or frozen.

    How it looks when attached to tree strap: Evo_button_basic.jpg

    How the button knot engages with the loop: Evo_button_basic_02.jpg

    Amsteel version illustrated: Evo_button_loop-de-loop_01.jpg

    Amsteel version in use: Evo_button_loop-de-loop_02.jpg

    Dynaglide version in use: Evo_button_loop-de-loop_dyneema.jpg

    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"

    I just did a test hang last night using these for one of my straps and another for attaching my hammock to and I must say I was very happy with the results. I think I might revisit the single suspension for my tarp as well for certain situations.
