    dynaglide chainlinks?

    i want to outfit my hmmk suspension system to the "dutch"

    chainlinks on hmmk, to dutch biner, to inverted whoopie sling girthed to webbing eye.

    i plan to do all with dynaglide. i've hung from the dg whoopies, but will dynaglide chainlinks pose a threat?

    If you are splicing the chain links I can't see why they shouldn't be OK.

    A proper splice retains almost all the of the ropes rated strength.

    Actaully dynaglide is idea because it easily fits in the gate of the biner with ease. I made vey small 2" dynaglide loops by making a locked brummel and buried the ends.

    thanks to all who've chimed in.
    the plan is to, yes, splice.

    good to know dynaglide, well, 'glides' easily into your biner dutch.

    anxiously awaiting my biners, the jacks said they should arrive tmrw.
