    Video: Another Use for Dutch Hooks

    Here's another way to use Dutch Hooks on your continuous ridge line.

    Edit: At 1:29 I meant to say, "tighten down the tarp" not hammock.


    If God had meant for us to sleep on the ground,
    He wouldn't have created trees....

    Creative... Simple... I like it...

    One other option (there is a million of them) is just making another small prussic on the tarp and clipping to it... You would avoid the possible abrasion of your main tarp line with the hook sliding back and forth(I think its a small remote possibility)
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    Yes, I've thought of that. I can actually hook back to the prussic loop very easily.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
