    They should work fine. Anything over the stock carabiners are an improvement!

    I always wrap the strap around the tree twice. Never had a problem with them slipping with either me in or out of the hammock.

    C.A.M.P. makes climbing rated carabiners called Nano 23's that are only 23 grams.

    Have you look into Dutch biners or Dutch hooks. Good luck.

    +1 on the CAMP or the Mad Rock Ultralight Bent Wiregate. Whichever is in stock where I shop. Both are about the lightest around, while still meeting the necessary force requirements.

    I replaced mine too with some biners from REI. They are much lighter and I don't have to worry about the sharp edges like the stock ones have.
