    1. It would be better to get a Titanium Dutch Hooks. Titanuim Dutch Hooks They're made of Ti and much stronger and are excellent with 1.75 ZingIt.

    2. I used 1.75 ZingIt. You can go up to 1/8 shockcord if I remember correctly.

    One Thing is completely correct here. Go with the Dutch hook for tarp ridge lines.

    An example would be, I have a poncho that I use as an Over-cover on my hammock in cold weather. These will be perfect for setting it up. What normally would take me 10 mins, could be done in a few at the most. (Another video review in the process)

    Thanks again. I look forward to when your ready to sell these little gems. I'll be buying at least 10 more.
    Thanks for the current video. I'd like to see one for the over-cover set up too.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    No problem at all. It was nice of Dutch to let me be able to get my hands on them 1st to test them out.

    I ordered more of these little babies last week and they should be here this week. I really though about going with a Sock, but knowing I always have my poncho with me, there's no reason not to use it for double duty as an over-cover. The problem has always been finding a way of setting it up & down fast & easy. I just couldn't find anything small enough, lite enough until these came alone. So, I look forward to getting them on, and doing a small review on them as well.
