    Unused suspensions/webbing/tree straps?

    Might be a long shot, but I was ordering some tablecloths to make hammocks for the kids when I realized that getting them suspensions was going to cost more than I thought. I'm fairly new to this, so I don't have any extra parts laying around just yet. If you have anything laying around that you don't think you are going to use anymore, let me know! thanks!

    How old are they? Find some cars eat straps for kids that are old enough that they don't need the harnesses anymore. My harness looks just like carseat straps. Somewhere I may have my kids straps, but I have no idea where. Most carseat straps are tested to 3000-5000 pound impact load.

    It can be done super cheap. Use old seat belts from a wrecking yard for tree straps and rope for suspension. I bet you can make enough for the whole family for $20.

    How much strap do you need? Do you need two full suspension systems or just enough straps to sew up 4 tree straps?
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    wasn't really sure yet honestly. was just trying to piece something together. either some whoopies and tree straps, or maybe full length webbing with some descender rings/buckles.

    can you get amsteel/dynaglyde locally?

    I have stuff I'm not using anymore. Shoot me a PM and let's discuss, if you like. If you send your phone number, I'll call you.
