Nice post -FiveFiveSix-.
As Wanderlust78 already pointed out, this is essentially a cinch buckle.
Has anyone tried using the cinch buckles we commonly see here, such as the Dutchware Cinch Buckle, in this application?
If a cinch buckle works as the marlin spike knot device (maybe with a loop tightener to prevent the loop from falling off) wouldn't that be one of the lightest webbing-based suspensions yet?
Surely someone here as already tried this. Please let me know because I have this Dutchware order in mind that's burning a hole in my pocket.
This stuff is great! Thanks again.
Nicely done, Five!
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)
He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)
While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)
So many great ideas, yet not one yet that seems to be perfect. I keep trying different methods, and always find a kink that for some reason I look for the next method.
I look forward to what you come up with in the future.
For those with stiff Dutch buckles, I filed and sanded the slots on my DBs, the webbing slides through much easier now and feeding the end back through still locks them off fine.
Im going to try this idea on a smaller scale.. I was tinkering around with my tarp set up, and I could see the use for something like this on the ridge line.. Ill get some pics up if its sucsessfull... Has anyone else had a chance to try this out? im intrested in some feed back.
