    VIDEO: How to create Nacrabiner with a Diamond Stopper

    4g carabiner replacement? 4 grams? 40¢ each? I am freaking out.

    All credit goes to nacra533 and this thread: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=9059

    I was so impressed with this tech, I immediately made a tutorial video on the nacra533 'biner with the "Diamond" stopper knot.

    Hopefully it will help people embrace this genius apparatus.

    It is imperative to use the "Diamond" or "Lanyard" knot for the stopper. Overhand knots and similar have been known to fail.

    I realized I didn't explain the Diamond knot well enough, so I made an appendix video, carefully detailing the aspects of how to make a Lanyard knot. I hope this will help some people. Thanks.

    Thanks for the kind words. Hopefully, these videos explain the concepts well enough. I want to order 600 feet of amsteel, just to make 300 of these things. I want them dangling from everything I own, just in case.

    Great set of tutorials. I love the diamond knot vid. Just my speed . I always get hung up on it because I go the wrong way at the beginning. Didn't "whip it".

    Thanks for posting!

    Here's a quick version of just the Diamond/Lanyard knot for the fast learners, all action, under blacklighting.

    Wow, I love the blacklight video. I've been wanting to make some of these and your instructions took away my last excuse. Thanks for the contribution.

    Well, since you like the blacklighting, how about a "Light Duty" variation video - for light loads, like 'bining your pack to a tree - enter the Parabiner™:

    Thanks for the vids. It was like getting knotting instructions from Shawn Mullins.

    Cool videos. I can hardly wait for the "Fixed Eye" one. Will it be a "Fixed Eye" on both ends?
