    Okay, I need to bite on this one.

    What are these used for? I'm good with whoopies, UCRs, triangle thingies and nacrabiners. But I have no clue where to put this thing you made.

    You can use them to attach tri-glides or descender rings to your hammock for Strap-suspension, or to extend the length of a whoopie sling. Larkshead it to your hammock and use a carabiner or dutch biner to make your whoopie sling removable. Use it with the Dutch Biner or carabiner to make a tree hugger longer.

    Use it as a cool fashionable belt....

    I'm sure more people here will have more uses...

    Interesting that you added an eye at one end. If you're going to do that, does it make sense to leave it as a loop, or just put locked brummel eyes at each end?

    Just thinkin...

    Darn.. I should have asked Santa for 100' of amsteel to play with!

    I just came up with the idea when I made the Triangle thingies. For example, you can have it as a key chain around your neck. In swedish "Nöden är uppfinningarnas moder/Necessity is the mother of invention. If you know what I mean
