    I use the chimes off of a miniature wind chime no longer in use. They already have a small hole for my line to not loose them.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    Probably not available to some, but my favorite toggles are the tips of small deer antlers

    I picked up a fibreglass tent pole from a broken tent at a festival. Cut a 3" piece of that, Good and solid. Perhaps not as light as a titanium toggle but they were free

    You can also use Bully Sticks.

    Seriously, anything remotely resembling a stick will work. But sometimes something with a very smooth surface is better because it's easier to pull out with some of the UHMWPE and Kevlar webbings that cinch down to very small, hard knots when loaded.
    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"

    I've use carbon fiber arrow shafts, slurpie straws, fiberglass driveway markers, cut down aluminum shepherd hook stakes and the Dutch Ti.

    Dutch Ti wins for cool factor... cut down aluminum shepherd hook stakes win for strength & price... I think the single stake was $0.99 and makes two toggles.

    Picture here... Be forewarned.. the picture is huge!!

    Arrows worked well! Glad I tied cordage to the end, makes pulling them out easier.
