    Anyone tried the Line-Locs with Lash It?

    I am intrigued with the Mini Line-Locs in the HF Store. The smalls ones are listed to work with line between 1mm-3mm and with Lash It being 1.75mm, the raw numbers say they should work. But with Lash It being flat and a tad slippery, was wondering if they would hold good enough for a sil tarp.

    Anyone tried this combo?

    The Mini Line-Locs are great especially so when you set them up with a prussic.

    Just setting up my MacCat with Zing-It 1.75 line--they are holding great. The slipperiness does not seem to be an issue. Am going to try to use them as part of an adjustable attachment of the tarp to a continuous ridge line.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, I believe Zing It and Lash It are the same except for color.

    Herbalist - let us know how your test goes.

    I've just finished fiddling with the Line-Locs and Zing It ridge line. They work great--no slipping. The Line-Locs are permanently threaded onto the ridge line. I string the RL, then tie the tarp ridge loops to the other hole in the Line Locs with a bit of Zing It (could also use a micro biner here with a tiny loop threaded through the Line Loc). I can now very easily position the tarp over my hammock or where I want it, stretch it out, and stake it down.
