Now that I use snakeskins on my hammocks I am always faced with the
problem of storing my stakes. Rolling them up in the hammock scares
me a little and having a separate place for them means I am always
looking for them when I need them. So here is what I came up with.
I doubled over a length of webbing and sewed it back to it's self
creating a pocket. I insert the stakes in the pocket and the whole
thing gets lashed to the tarp or hammock. The webbing is thick
enough to not allow the stakes to puncture my tarp, and they are
always with the gear that needs them. Here are the pixels.
BTW, I got a screaming deal on polypro webbing from here:
It is rated a little less than Ed's, but I used it today and it held
fine. I will be using it for three days this weekend, so I should
know for sure after that.
I also bought some of these to try the double ring suspension, I
bought six. I didn't realise they were so BIG! They must weigh half
a pound each! They do work however, but they will not be a part of
my hammock system. BTW, I think they work because they are powder
coated not polished. So for those of you who are trying to do this
maybe you can find some, or have some, powder coated.
