    Rings for Ring-Buckles

    So, I will be setting up my new hammock per Just Jeff's Ring Buckles article. I am likely going to order the 1" webbing from StrapWorks.com - Is anyone familiar with their O-rings? May just order both from them so I don't have to order from multiple sources.

    Thanks

    - JT

    O-rings

    I don't see any ratings on those. At least at Lowes you can see the ratings on the rings. Around 200 lbs if I remember correctly, maybe the rating on the larger rings is higher.

    I bought some when I ordered some webbing. They weigh 1oz each. They don't have a rating. I have used them to hang with when I am not backpacking. Like Grizz said you know the load rating on the Lowes rings

    Yeah, that's kinda why I was asking. Didn't realize Lowe's had some, that makes sense. I'll have to check Home Depot tomorrow, it's right next door to the grocery store I need to stop at in the morning.

    The link in Jeff's article is b0rked.

    Online source for the rings.

    And the obligatory link to Cinch Buckles.

    Yes we must "always" remember those fine cinch buckles.
    I love them.

    Would someone be kind enough to do some sewing of the webbing for me if I shipped you all the materials and return postage? The short webbing on the hammock side of the cinch and a loop in the end of the long webbing?
