    Lightbulb New site for all your strap needs? (tree straps)

    Hey all-

    I ran across this site looking for webbing today for some DIY tree straps. They sell pre-sewn straps at what I thought were pretty reasonable prices for all of us "non-thread injector" types...

    It might even be a place we could do a group buy from with some custom Hammock Forums logo-ing on in the future to support the site?

    Here's the link to the sewn straps:

    http://www.strapworks.com/Simple_Slings_s/717.htm

    *BTW - I am in no way affiliated with this site, just a random find while perusing the interwebs. I've never ordered from them, and don't know about quality or customer service. The "about" page seems like it's a pretty legit mom-and-pop operation though. There's even a small blurb about hammocking in their blog.

    That is where I got my straps but did the sowing myself. They have a ton of options for type, color or pattern of straps. If you look around on Facebook, retailmenot.com or get their news letter you can get codes for 5% or more off your order.

    Thumbs up StrapWorks

    I've used StrapWorks before too.
    Total thumbs up!!!
    They helped me out a lot and it's not like I was making a giant order.
    Based on my experience with them, I heartily endorse StrapWorks!

    My go-to site for tree straps, or any other straps (like canoe straps to hold it on my car).

    If I remember correctly Strapworks has a member presence on the forum. I've used them for years.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I have made several orders with them for the same items (but in the seat belt material). Super fast shipping and awesome products! Perfect A++++
