    Awesome post Randy. I use these around the gathered end ball of material on hammocks to provide attachment for whoopies, that way if whoopie is getting fraid or is damaged, easy to change out.
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    I just made a pair of these tonight to use as tree-strap extenders and for whatever other needs come along.

    Also, while I absolutely support everyone spending their money with cottage vendors, I also want to encourage folks — even the DIY-squeamish folks — to try making these. Amsteel is easy enough to splice, especially with a loop turner, and it's fun to pick up a new skill. I just taught myself a few days ago.

    Here's a video I consulted along the way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygCS1FI1gsw

    That might move a little fast if you don't know how to make a locked brummel. If that's the case, try these:

    Funny how this post pops up just as I was pulling out the splicing tools to make some of these. Anyway, thanks for the bump. I'll definitely be referencing this tonight while doing this.

    I find dogbones to come in handy way more often than I thought they would. It's just so don isn't to have a short peice of cord with a loop on each end.
