    Turtle Ties, a new hammock suspension option

    I wanted to introduce you all to the Turtle Tie. It's a new product I came up with and am bringing to the hammock suspension market.

    Aside from being super adorable, these little guys allow you to hang from a single amsteel rope, simplifying and lightening your gear. They can also be used as tarp tie outs, shackle buckles, and numerous other tasks.

    You can buy these at my shop. They'll also be making some appearances at upcoming group hangs and raffles.

    Hit me up with any questions or comments, I'd love to hear them.

    The embedded video seems to be broken, my bad I guess. Here's the direct link so you can watch it while o figure out the problem.

    Probably no more hardware bits for me, but I think you've got a very refined-looking product there, and a nice website as well. I do see how they could offer some advantages over whoopie slings. Nice work and I wish you the best of luck with your venture!

    I did not see it mentioned whether they are aluminum or titanium. I assume titanium based on their relative size and use as a primary suspension component? Either way, something you might want to consider adding to the description, as I'm sure others will be curious.

    They are made from 7075 aluminum which has an exceptionally high yield strength. Because it's a closed shape the load is shared between both sides (as opposed to an open hook) the strength is not an issue here. Plus aluminum is nearly half the weight of titanium.

    Good point on calling it out on the product description. I'll be sure to include it there.

    Very true, though sometimes people assume the opposite.
    After taking another look at the cleanly machined edges and chamfers, I figured they were probably aluminum.
