    FREE hammock hardware

    I was at Home Depot the other day and was getting some chain and noticed the split chain links in a pile. there were several heavy links (1500 pounds and up) laying there. when the heavy chain links is cut it splits a part wide enough for a whoopie sling and 1" webbing on the other side.

    I am 220 pounds and even the not so big link held me with no stretching. I got 5 of them and now I can put my beaners away and use these free ones.

    I am new here so sorry if everyone already knows this.

    They are probably fairly heavy. If you are not weight conscious then good score.

    Yes to weight...the big ones weigh same as beaner. but the smaller ones are probably lighter then beaner. Free is the key and if lost no problem.
    Hang it high and God Bless!!

    Sounds like a great score! Perfect for backyard or car camping use.
