    I just found this thread, can't believe i missed it. Just what i needed to get rid of the toggles from my setup. I would like a permanent version on my tarps, and the loop/stopper knot (nacrabiner) version for my huggers. Can i just make a spliced closed loop for the tarp tieout? I want it to be tiny, light. Can you make tiny continuous loops by splicing?

    Yes, Ike, those can be found in the "continous loop" thread. There is a few different links for tutorials, as well.

    Wow these are so handy, im gonna make some to carry. As the ultimate test, would you guys trust these while climbing? Could be a way to significantly lighten a climbers load.

    Wow! You folks gotta give us relative newcomers a break here! By the time I sorted out which is the head end and which is the foot of my hammock, I started reading all these threads about suspensions. Each one sounds more fantastic than the last! I can't get one completely implemented before it becomes passe and I'm feeling like I have an antique setup.

    You have to let me get at least one hang in on a new suspension before I have to relegate it to holding the screen door open! I figure that I'll just stop trying to keep up and wait, because I figure, in about 6 more posts, one of you will show how to levitate your hammock with no suspension what-so-ever!!

    Ummm, That was last weeks thread, search the anti-gravity system that Grizz and TeeDee built. It's sweet.!! To heavy to pack though.

    Yes but the anti-gravity device can be used on the anti-gravity device itself so that it just floats down the trail.

    Now If we could just get it into something smaller than a semi-trailer.

    To make search easier I'm going to add nacrabiner to the title of this thread. I'm also going move it into suspension forum and sticky it.

    I noticed most of you guys are making these out of amsteel, Is it of concern for the functionality of the system to use varying diameter lines. I want to make one out of dynaglide to connect my whoppie slings to my tree huggers as seen here, wondering if dynaglide would be ok. I ask because of abrasion where the whoppie makes contact with the nacra. They are gonna both be dynaglide.

    This morning, I made a loop shackle with a piece of cored, braided, nylon small stuff that was laying around here. Since it is cored, I just used an overhand knot instead of a marlin splice tuck.
