    Larks head to cinch buckles

    I would like to know if I can larks head the 7/64 amsteel suspension triangle of a bridge hammock to the cinch buckles themselves. I would like to attach the the triangle directly to the buckle as I think the connection will not slip like an amsteel larks headed to amsteel connection.

    Edit: I'm asking about the AHE cinch buckles.

    Hey Packeagle, sorry I missed your skype last night.

    The quick and simple answer is no. The more drawn out answer is that the plates of the buckle need to be able to freely slide across one another and larks heading them directly into place could restrict that movement. With the Chain link that we are building into the buckle they are not being clamped together so they are able to offset from each other slightly allowing them to grip the webbing properly.

    Now the chain Link could always be attached to the suspension triangle with a girth hitch.....

    That is exactly what I was afraid was going to be your answer. I will play with the idea of the girth hitch,
