Thinking about ordering a set of Dutch Clips, but have a question ...
I currently use locking, gated, climbing carabiners, with a toggled bight. They work great. The Dutch clips would certainly reduce the weight, but here's my question:
They way the Dutch Clips work, all the weight would now be placed on ONE of the sewn looped ends on the HH straps, rather than BOTH when I use the 'biners. The clips would certainly be easy to use, but by placing ALL the weight on only ONE strap loop, am I doubling the chance of strap failure?
'Biners - both loops engaged and sharing the load
Dutch Clips - only ONE loop engaged
Silly question, but inquiring minds (mine) want to know!
