Put these on my tarp for some Minnesota winter hammocking. Very easy and fast to put my tarp up with the aliens . Got three inches of snow overnight and my ridgeline was still taught in morning. The aliens did not slip at all.
Just purchased another set for my other tarp.
A great slightly less expensive hardware option for suspension. Very light, functional, and with round edges, no fear of accidentally cutting your tarp when it is all packed together into a stuff sack.
Brought to you by RSBTR. A great vendor to do business with!
I must admit, I watched a video on how to use the LoopAlien about 10 times before I really understood it. It's probably just a me thing, as I was a little slow on the concept. It's actually super easy and super lightweight. It's definitely going to have a permanent place in my gear bag.
Works great with lash-it. Tried to do tarp guy lines without it, but lash it doesn't untie very well once you weight the knot. This is a much better system.
The Loop Alien is a versatile piece of hardware that allows a quick set up, tight pitch to a tarp, but does not bite into cord and is easy to loosen. They can be used on tarp tie outs, too, or anywhere that cord needs to be held tightly, but loosened quickly.
