    Now that's some hardware I would use! That's one nice looking piece of aluminum. Tri-glides and Cinch buckles for webbing are pretty nice - but this takes the cake. I don't know how you get DIY Aluminum to come out looking so nice.

    I'm guessing having the right tools makes a big difference.

    These are really nice looking. Got to see them Thanksgiving weekend. Although he was supposed to give a few to play with and then didn't. I don't know about this guy.

    Bloom buckle? Looks very interesting. I must admin I try not to use any hardware when hanging, but that looks really easy. Are the edges sharp enough to do damage to the huggers, amsteel, etc?

    I was referring to the stress on the amsteel that is looped over the hook. seems like a lot of force concentrated on a very small area.

    there is a slight edge on the slots where the straps go through but nothing that will damage the tree strap. same for the amsteel. i tried them without sanding the edge and it left a mark on the amsteel but after the rope was able to return to straight the impression relaxed without damaging the braid. the ones i'm using now have a sanded edge where the amsteel nets
