    Carabiners do not come with the hammock. Many members buy Dutch Clips for webbing suspension.

    Can you lash the dutch clips to something larger (the ends of your webbing) so that you don't lose them? They seem like they're easy to lose while setting up or taking down.

    That vid should help. In any case it is a very cool bus and check out the truck in the background.

    Just sew the loop with the Dutch Clips closed enough so the clips can not fall out

    Dutch Clips or Camp Nano 23 Carabiners.
    If there's two ways to take my comments, assume it's the lighter and funnier of the two.

    I made Soft shackles or Loop shackles for mine. Known locally here at HF as Nacrabiners I believe.
    Use the search function and you shall find.

    Love the Dutch clip. Throw a simple stitch in it and it will go nowhere. It is just that simple.

    The opinions expressed by this user are not those of a competent individual. If they were that would mean I know what I am talking about.

    I bought the biners when I got my WBBB and they are Al alloy, 550 kg rated and pretty light. Good quality and never had an issue w/ failure, just bulky. Brandon wouldn't offer anything that wasn't good quality...
    But I agree with the majority of opinions about using the Dutch Clip w/ strapping sewn tight to prevent loss. Especially now w/ JRB on vacation for the month of Aug, quick replacement isn't an option. Might check HF store have any in stock yet...
    A couple climbing rated biners would be good to have along any trip as they have may uses. Mine are on my pack for immediate use.
