    JRB Tri-Glides

    Did a search but did not find anything. Anyone tried the new JRB Tri-Glides? I have not done any mods on any of my hammocks. I really enjoy tying a good knot and just look at it as part of setting up a hammock camp. After seeing these I'm thinking about trying them on my Speer? What to do? Keep it simple or start the slippery slope.....

    They were first mentioned here, so they only were released this week. I don't think anyone has received any yet.

    Hey...... I just ordered a pair and going to try them with straps on my DIY hammock. I to use a combo of knot with 900 lb. line and nylon "tree hugging" straps.
    Wonder if the slides and straps will be a quicker rig??

    I'll probably pick up a set to try out.

    Thought of a pretty light suspension combo using the JRB Tri-Glides.
    Spyderline attached to end of hammock. Then attached to one SMC ring.
    Sew your polyester webbing onto the SMC ring and wrap around tree and attach to the Tri-Glide.
    Of course no modifications needed with hammocks like a Speer or JRB Bridge hammock that have the correct (polyester/polypropylene) type of webbing.

    I find this amazing, a high rope mate of mine who specializes in engineering, oil refinery towers, tanks etc just gave me 6 stainless steel buckles that are identical to those just last week ! he and his company get them made up in batches, they use them on their decender harnesses on the leg, foot stirrups. They are ppe rated so are more than capable on handling a hammock hang.

    I was going to use them to cinch up the extra webbing on my tree huggers, but using them on the bridge hammock is also a good idea.

    The slider buckles have been available for climbing use for a long time in steel. I think JRB's contribution seems to be having lightweight aluminum ones made.
