    Carabiners included with adjustable webbing suspension?

    As far as I can tell from the setup videos, there are supposed to be carabiners included with the adjustable webbing suspension. Between the two hammocks I ordered, there are zero carabiners included. Have the setup procedures changed, were the carabiners omitted from my order, or do I need to provide the carabiners myself?

    Hmmm. Now I see it - carabiners sold separately. I obviously missed the fine print when I ordered. My bad, but I guess I ASSumed that a $250 hammock that takes over a month to arrive would come with everything needed to set it up. WOW ... WOW!

    Shouldn't an item that is a recommended/illustrated component for setup have an opt-out choice instead of opt-in?

    You need more kook aid.

    Some folks use biners, some use Dutch Hooks with their BB, some use whoopies. I use Dutch Hooks, weight less, smaller, easier to use

    Even hammocks that come with complete suspensions systems will often get changed out to something easier (for me) to use.

    I wonder what you'll say when you buy a tarp

    Hint: they don't come with the stakes or ridgeline

    In other news, I am sorry to report that Cornflakes do not come with the milk, bowl, or spoon. These must be purchased separately. Package deals may be available from... YourKitchen.org

    OK sticks work in place of carabiners. Blood pressure is down a bit after a short recline in the RR. (XLC didn't seem to help, but it may just require a little more tinkering).

    Cornflakes comparison ignored - funny, but ignored. Tarp analogy viably considered. I still think it would be a MUCH wiser business decision to give the customer a choice to opt out of the gear that is included in the setup video. Either that, or explicitly mention the options in the setup video.

    Or the customer should read all the details. My WBBB came with biners, because I ordered them...

    Sticks, biners, clips... As long as you get to sit in your hammock, nothing else matters for that time!

    Honestly, they're cheaper at your local EMS. If I didn't already own a handful, I would have paid the bit extra just to give Warbonnet more business.
