    Noob question on carbiner's

    Okie dokie

    Iíve got my DL DIY hammock made and ready for my DIY whoopies. I gots me some strapping and???

    I think I am going with carabineers instead of the Dutch clips for know. How in the world do I select a biner? Most have a rating so how does one select? I sure donít wanna end up on the ground in my hammock before I ever leave the house!!! LOL Thanks!

    Anything climbing rated will be fine. Look for something with at least 10kN (kilonewtons) on the major axis.
