    As I recall, the 'biners that come with ENOs

    are steel and heavy. If you simply untie the rope and substitute AHE's cinch buckles you have a readily-adjustable, non-slip solution with less weight to boot! I have AHE buckles on both of my rigs.

    I just larks headed the rings to the end cords on my Trek Light (similar to ENO). Very easy to do, took about 5 minutes to do both ends, and no worrying about the rings slipping. On the other hand..... now that I have a WB Traveler with the cinch buckles, and see how nice they are, I'll probably switch to them on my Trek Light at some point. As Jsaults said above..... light, easy to adjust, and no need for a back-up half hitch.

    Having passed through my "ring stage", I now have a stack of SMC rings gathering dust.

    Two things turned me away from them: bulk and the need to back them up with half hitches. Cinch buckles rule.

    I took my biners off my eno and put rings on. Cow hitcht them on like you would when you have a closed eye. You don't have to untie the line from the ENO, but you might have to slide the knot on the top down a little.

    You may not even need the rings if you have a biner attached through the channel.

    At 2:01 in this video, he does a pretty cool adjustment with only 1 ring but could be done with a biner instead.

    May work for you, may not.

    I've seen rings at home depot but they are steel. They are also welded and are rated in the 200 lb range. I have read some members here have triedthem without any issues but I'd rather trust something climbing rated.

    Your can order light weight rings from AHE, or from the REI website.
