Hi all,

At the end of last season I bought some heavy duty chain links for setting up my line. Dug the gear out last weekend and can't remember what i was doing with them exactly. Anyone able to clear up the mystery links?

Cheers

Some chain links can be used as a clove hitch replacement when used in a particular method. http://forum.slackline.com/modules.php?name=Encyclopedia&op=content&tid=8

I use cam buckles to do the same thing as I feel it's easier but the idea is to have a method that will allow a flat lying line with no knot in the main line.

Much appreciated Joe. I knew I had seen the photos somewhere but couldn't remember where. Happy Slackin
