    I would be able to give you ratings for your quilt hooks(need to pull my motor out), tarp flyz(my friend has a bent frame we need to straighten), Whoopie hooks(those fallen trees need to be gathered, lifted and dragged out), and Dutch clips(great for using on chains for the backhoe, bridge building you know).

    Dutch Gear is BIAS tested and approved. We use it and recommend it. The first time I used Whoopie Hooks was at the urging of HF member SilvrSurfr. After making and trying whoopie slings with whoopie hooks on the adjustable loop, I knew I'd never go back to life without them. Those simple, light hooks allow me to keep my hammock channel loops in place and make hooking up to my slings super easy. I thank Dutch for making hammocking a lot easier for me. I also use a TiBiner on my adjustable ridgeline and I've got Dutch Hooks on order that I look forward to trying. I really enjoy Dutchware.

    I finally got to test a Dutch hook last night. I used welding wire so it was the hook I was testing. It broke just before 200 pounds. I'm pretty content with that. If you Dutch hook breaks you can thank me for saving your tarp.

    Wow. With that load, if that little Dutch hook breaks without tearing the tarp, its because the tornado that picked up the tarp, without ripping it, and trees smashed the hook into a fuel truck that exploded
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
