According to an Oregon Fire Department testing of Carabiners, a 3-way load on a 10,000lb rated carabiner broke when loaded to 4700lbs.
Hi folks, I have been reading this forum for a while now, but I haven't posted yet. This is my first post There is a wealth of information here which I have greatly benefited from! Thank you to everyone who has posted over the years. I love that some of my favorite gear suppliers are here as well such as Dutchware and Warbonnet. I also am a big fan of Shug's videos
I know this is an older thread, but I was wondering how the Dutch biner mod to quicken the assembly of the Spindrift has held up ? Any failures ? I have a Spindrift in the mail and on the way to me so I have been brainstorming how I want to install it on my RR. I was thinking that this Dutch Biner mod might do just the trick. Have you found that the Larks head is essential ? Sounds like it would be a much safer option. Also, is installing and removing an under quilt (I have a new Lynx Four season that I am dying to try out) pretty straight forward with the Sprindrift installed ? Thanks ahead of time! -Lochlainn
