So in an effort to be innovative, I am trying to solve my unique problems as a (new) hanger. My rig is for Jeep trips where no convenient anchor points are available... or only one anchor (spike) point being the Jeep if I want to render the Jeep immobile while my DN is set up.
Here is my best shot at solving this problem to date:
The only real problem is the spikes. Using any stakes I currently have=failure.
I have found some companies on the Internet that make products that might work, but I need some idea of force exerted on the spike.
I set off to try and do the math, but cannot figure it out.
I searched hf and can't extrapolate from other threads.
Don't have/can't borrow a scale to measure.
I know the bipod bears weight, but I am not sure if it relieves any load from the amsteel.
Thinking the forum might enjoy a little puzzle, I decided to post. I hope this puzzle makes for a decent conversation and possibly an answer.
So the question is: Any idea what force is exerted on the spike from the rope??
btw, I do plan on a more traditional hang when possible. I have invested in whoopies and tree straps from hf vendors... great website and nice people here!!
