    The more I look at HamMike's free sliding toggle, the less I understand it. Does anybody have a pic of this type of toggle setup from another angle? Or a diagram? I can't figure out which way the lines are going. Thanks.

    Take a gander here:
    Me, I don't need no stinkin' biner, kneaux.
    I use a toggled hitch on my main connection and a fig9 on the opposite end.

    I tied the end of my line in a loop. I slid a 2in piece of plastic clothes hanger with a hole drilled in the middle onto the other end and all the way down to the looped end. I butterfly the loop and put the ends of the toggle into the two loops created from the butterfly. This allows me to lash it onto a tree without having to run the end of my line al the way through the loop. Here are a few shots. Just imagine my wrist is the tree.
