    I promise it is going to be very soon. I only got the springs from the spring company at the beginning of this month. They are en route to the Jacks as we speak. Just watch the video a couple more times and they will be on their site.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    This question may have been dealt with, but I'm suffering from allergies and exhaustion and can't seem to figure out the search terms to see what's up. So: in the original video, Hawk-eye rates the DB at 1000lbs. At JRB, however, it only rates them at 400lbs. Which is correct?

    failure rating > SWL (Safe Working Load)
    1000+ lbs > 400 lbs

    Hooray beer! Err, I meant to say Yaay simple!

    It picks up 1000 pounds no problem. However the 400 pound limit is for the hammocker because a 400 pound person can put more than 400 pounds of of weight on a suspension. I actually lifted 1700 pounds with it and all that happened was the spring gate on the notch which is what is suppose to happen. I have never had a catastrophic failure with one and I have pushed the limit of the amsteel.

    I agree that the 400 pound limit is confusing.
