    Tree Saver different loop sizes

    Probably a dumb question but why are the loops different sizes on the ends of the straps?

    I think the Dutch Clip goes in the smaller end and the other end goes to the whoopie sling. It seems like the Dutch Clip is more secure that way.

    That's the way I did it, anyway.

    Probably a good question, kinda wondered myself while experimenting.I use a moded SLS system with mule tape trucker's hitched thru the tree hugger loop. As long as I can wrap the tree and pass the end thru a loop, size shouldn't matter. But then I don't use clips, toggles, etc.
