I haven't field tested the Dee ring yet but it worked great in fabricating the tarp tent and fits my treking pole nicely.
The main thing about the Beastee dee rings have that regular dee's don't besides being much heavier duty, is that you can put a pole end into them without it slipping through. I use these on all my tarps.
I bought these D-rings to make attachment points for a under quilt on an ultralight hammock. They are just the right size and super-light. The only reason it didn’t get five stars is the package was supposed to contain a dozen, but only had eleven. No biggie, my design called for ten.
The hammock, with 12-foot ropes, ridgeline, and six-foot tree huggers weighs 10.5 ounces and will compresses to the size of a men’s softball—ten of these little d-rings and a few inches of grosgrain to put them on only adds a few grams of that.
I’ll buy the materials to make the rest of this modular hammock from Ripstop by the Roll, I’m happy with the service and the quality.
Always have what I need! Thank you!
If you need a strong D ring for your tarp, look no further. Beastee Dee Rings do not deform no matter how tight you need to make the pull outs. The hole also fits most hiking pole tips so they can be used to put your tarp in porch mode. The single "one dozen pack is a good price and provides enough rings for even big winter tarps.
