    Quilt clips

    I got to meet Matt From UK Hammock a couple weeks ago while in Europe. I brought back some treats and one in peticular is going on my site. These are a tiny side release buckle designed specifically for hammock quilts.

    They were designed to connect your quilt to your suspension, ridgeline or your triangle thingies. The hole on each end will fit 1/8th amsteel, it can be sewn or it will fit shockcord. Add a mini cord lock and you will have an ajustable quilt suspension. If you put the male end on one side of your quilt ad the female end on the other you will never mix up which end is head/foot ends again. They weigh 1 gram each and are plenty strong.


    These thing have all sorts of DIY applications. I put one on my pack and the mating part on my bandanna so my bandanna has its home. There are so many creative ideas waithing for these that I have only begun to find places to use them.

    Were the pics of those taken on top of someone's not-quite-shaved head?

    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

    You've always been one to walk to the beat of a different drum.

    Listening to me will get you in trouble.

    I'm going to add to this by saying I am getting more and more emails telling me that people are using these to thread onto there ridgelines so you can remove the need for an organiser, they just add the other half of the clip to stuff sacks/kit and can simple clip it all up...

    That's exactly how i use them for my hammock pillow. Connect them with some bungie cord and never again lose your pillow at night
