    Now you can really take it up a notch and read this one. There will be a test at the end.

    I can so relate. This was one of the first I read when I joined, it was really helpful to me as I determined my suspension system. This group is an incredible resource. You are now a hammock scholar of sorts.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Cinch Buckles

    I hate to see such a huge thread without adding something...

    I've looked at rings and D rings. Both of them slipped without a knot behind them. I also had a rude awakening one evening when a hardware store ring decided to deposit my on the ground at 1:30 in the morning.

    Asa result, I have been on a quest for cinch buckles that will work with 1" webbing while holding me up without releasing.

    That's what I came up with. I've ordered a few already, but I was wondering if anyone has tried these. If they don't work for my hammock, I suppose they'll work fine for my canoe or kayak.

    If anyone has any experience with these, I'd appreciate hearing from you.

    I wouldn't use those for hanging myself. They are generally for tie downs, and can be pretty harsh on the webbing.

    Here is what most are using. They work great:

    I have used those for a couple of years now, so far no problems.

    Those Strapworks cams are 800 lb "test", but I wonder what the weight is?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
