These quilt hooks are great but they are not made to hold a gear hammock with a 20lb pack hung on a 15* angle.

    I just wanted to put that out there for anyone else using there quilt hooks not as originally intended.

    You probably need a set of ti hooks for that.

    I replaced them with loop shackels. I was using the quilt hooks because the hook was large enough to fit on my Amsteel whoopie.

    Poor little quilt hooks. Heed the warning, use only as directed.

    LOVE dutch products but I tried the plastic Clip on quilt hooks and the plastic Ridgeline Quilt Hooks and just didn't find them all that useful with my underquilt. I may be using a thinner shock-cord then what it was designed for but it also didn't grip my hammock hem all that well either.

    I do use two dutch hooks which i widened slightly in the same effect that dutch uses the aluminum quilt hooks in the hammock suspension and i think that works great so I wasn't to disheartened and will probably find a use for the clips with different diy projects.

    Yes he does. The quilt hooks are available in plastic.

    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
