These things are great. I use them with the 1.5 inch spider web straps from Dutchware. I put one fishhook on the loop end to ease attachment to a tree and put another on my armsteel continuous loop that is attached to my gathered end. I then tie a marlin spike hitch and use the hook on the end of the hammock in lue of the spike/toggle. No slipping, easy to adjust, and extremely lightweight setup that is able to accommodate any size tree even at close proximity. Two 15' straps with one hook attached each weighs only 57grams/2 oz for both straps.

It is combined with ultra-light webbing.
It's also attached to the end loops of the hammock with four straps.
It's perfect for use.
You can see how to install the hitch in this video from Warbonnet Outdoors.
I would buy it again if I didn't have to worry about shipping costs to Japan.
These folks are da bomb. Customer service is awesome. On a scale from 1 to 10, they are an 11. Quality products, great service.
