    Nite Ize Micro s biners

    Found a Key chain at the auto store with six micro Biners $3.99, plus a webbing clip. Think they will be great for Ridgeline hangers.

    Which auto store chain did you get those from? Those are handy to have in general.

    FYI I broke 2 yesterday. Switching back to the small s-biner for the TRL.

    I've been looking for those to use on the superfly doors. I found the keychain metal ones at ****'s Sporting goods but they were $8.99

    Yeah my Auto Zone carries them for $3.99 on the keychain display next to the front register. These are a little nicer than dual sided mitten hooks, but still won't support much weight.

    I use these size 0's for everything, not really tough enough for ridgeline biners they tend to fail at about 35lbs, they're actually about 3 times tougher than their larger size 2 brothers. I came up with a "semi-soft shackle" that halves the load by looping the shackle throuh the attachment point and clipping back in itself. My thought is that it woud effectively double the capacity, it seems to be working pretty well so far.

    See Dutch's ridgeline biner pictured beside, is 2 grams and tougher than nails.

    They are perfect for doors when used in conjunction with small split rings. They are a world class hassle with just webbing.

    PILOT truck stops have these, along with other Niteize products.
