    Thanks for the answers and photos, that helped a great deal as I want to change out the stock Hennessy suspension.
    Take care,

    I tried to dye them black with a dye that said "not for polyester".
    As you can see it just made them darker.
    Fail? I don't know maybe. Better than Bright Screaming Yellow!

    Being a gear head, I think Dutch Clips are uber cool. Besides they were invented by an HF member which really adds to the cool factor.

    If they ever are made for 1.5" straps, I'll probably end up buying 2. Or 4.

    Having said that, TeeDee and I have been on a mission to eliminate all webbing and hardware from our suspension.

    We (really TeeDee mostly) succeeded.

    We now have zero hardware in our suspension from tree to tree and that includes the Bridge Hammock. It is the least bulk and lighter than it has ever been and the easiest to use system either of have used.

    All I did was Sloshed them around in a bucket with the dye then rinced the heck out of them in the sink in my garage and there is no noticable difference.
