    Cinch buckles came!...sewing questions...

    So just wanted to express how elated I am at my new cinch buckles from onrope1. I called them up Monday, ordered just 2 (gave me no problems about that) and she told me they'd be shipped out Wednesday. Well today they came. 2 days for priority mail from TN to FL aint bad. They're alot more robust and quality looking than I originally thought. And I didn't expect the center bar to move, but that makes sense so perhaps I'm just dense

    Anyhow, with my biners and polyester webbing on the way I had a sewing question. I'm gonna be sewing my own webbing loops and I've got some 100% polyester 3-ply thread from Joann Fabrics. I was just gonna sew some "x-box" pattern for each loop. Will this be good enough to hold? I don't wanna get all this 1000+lb test material just to fall on my butt from a crappy sewing job.

    Thanks for the help

    should be fine.
    If you have a hh hugger to look at you can copy their pattern.
    I do a square with an X in the middle(triple stitched). You can also do some vertical and horiz. lines to make it more of an asterisk if you're inclined.
    No matter.....I think it'll hold.

    I agree that it should be fine. I do hope that your sewing machine is up to the task, though. The el-cheapo machine that I have won't sew through multiple thicknesses of webbing without bunching up.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
