    Very unique and effective system.

    Very unique and effective system. Very tough, stands up to New Mexico’s constant 40 mph desert winds with no tension slack.

    Prefer these over the soft shackles

    These connectors are much easier to position on the ridgeline, since they are spliced permanently. The soft shackles are prussicked on the ridgeline and they can sometimes bind or twist, making them difficult to slide. Sure the connectors are heavier, but I choose the convenience over the weight savings.

    3 out of 5 These are just ok

    I like a lot of stuff that Dutch comes out with. His ideas are always creative and effective. I also like the idea of a continuous ridgeline for my tarp set up but haven’t quite been able to find a perfect solution.
    I like a tight tarp with a tight center ridge so that my tarp isn’t as flappy in the wind. The problem I have with these is in order to get a great grip on the ridgeline you have to set the connectors already in the location and locked when you set up the ridge line itself. if you don’t you will be blistering your fingers trying to get the tiny plastic to wrap around a tight line. if you make your line looser so that it’s just a bit easier to get the connector to bite the when you go to stake down your tarp it pulls the tato connector in with it sliding down the ridgeline. The tubing used to hold the knots in place have also been rather worn from the tension.

    I’m sure I’m doing something wrong and I’m sure this works great when you are not trying to gorilla handle your setup.

    I prefer this over other systems due to having a little give. I feel having a small amount of give is safer on the Crazy wind we get here In the plains. They don’t put wind turbines he for no reason ha ha. It saves the tarp from damage and a headache in the middle of the night.

    In what way is the shock cord affected by sub-freezing temperatures? What happens as the temperatures plummet?

      We have had the shock cord in negative degree temperatures and nothing has happened.

    Good for easy switching of positions

    I use a 10×13 tarp and having this type of connection makes it easy to go between attachment loops and then slide to center, or unhook one side and move the tarp to one end when not needed. Has been working great on mason line, though I’m switching to Lash It because the tangles are driving me crazy. Paired with a Dutch Hook and a singly Tarp Fly and I have a quick and easy ridgeline.

    Useful

    Got these when they first came out. They work very well and you don’t need to tie knots with these.

    Product Review

    First, I have not purchased these, yet. I make my own hammocks and tarps. My husband and I like to hang our hammocks together using spreader bars. The problem is a tarp to cover them both is huge and an extra item to carry. Both hammocks have their own tarps. These caught my eye because I think they could be used to solve our problem, connecting 2 tarps as well as attaching them to the ridge line. I will let you know if they did solve our problem.

    Don’t make things difficult

    Avoid dealing with a continuous ridge line that is all tangled up. These connectors are great for setting your tarp up perfectly centered over your hammock every time, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors.

    My next order!

    I already have the continuous ridge line and currently using the soft shackles. I plan on ordering these next time I get an order together. They seem strong, simple and practical. Can’t wait to try a pair and it could be with some new Tato stands as well.

    Easy

    There’s no better way to describe it. No fussing with Prusik knots, super easy adjustment and it holds tight. Just make sure you leave a little slack in the ridgeline to do the wrap on the connector.

    Quick and Easy

    Although I personally prefer a split ridgeline on my primary winter tarp, I use these frequently on my smaller Asym tarp with a continuous ridgeline.
    Quick and easy to build into the ridgeline system and they make for quick adjustments in centering the tarp just right.

    Effective and Versatile

    These tough hooks do a great job of creating a tight tarp that’s easily adjusted along a continuous ridgeline. My experience is they work better when the ridgeline is above the tarp, but I used them with ridgeline under as well. It’s amazing how well they hold the tension.
