Re: [Hammock Camping] would this work to hold line?
- I would be wary -- the catalog did not give any load ratings for these
cleats. I don't think I'd trust them to hold my weight, plus the
extra leverage imposed by the hammock. Also, cleats like these tend
to abrade the lines, shortening their lives. And they don't make the
most secure connections, and thus could let you down suddenly in the
middle of the night. I'd look to climbing hardware, rather than
sailing gadets, for hammock use.

- Hi Moz,
I like that knot. It's basically a prussic with a clever way of tying
off. Once tied, is it adjustable?
The pics are great--very clear.
