      Hence the reason why many will even forgoe the use of the cheap carabiners you can buy at the hardware stores, and use the "climbing rated" carabiners (carabiners that are supposed to support "life", so you know they'll work for hanging hammocks!) to support the ends instead.

      Load limit on them is 150 pounds.

      I would not hang in a hammock with these.

      As has been commented before: using anything rated at less than about
      600 pounds is prone to failure.

      Risk
