    The Best! Greatest of All Time! Game Changing! The Most Awsome!

    I don't like videos where people cut out the mistakes they made during the demonstration. Everyone would would like to do something 100% perfect but that is impossible. I leave all my mistakes for realism. Sometimes SNAFU.

    It works fine. Someone asked about this a few months ago so I made a video.

    The Best! Greatest of All Time! Game Changing! The Most Awsome!

    The worst is when someone has just bought something and says how great it is. Then they say it will be here any day.

    Screw or Autolock Carabiner?

    If you use a screwgate on the girth hitch of your tether, swinging around the tree, the screw can rub against the tree and get unscrewed. I know, don't use a carabiner here, but if you do it is something to be aware of. Auto lockers are safer here, if used.

    Screw or Autolock Carabiner?

    I have been going up a tree and looked and seen my screw lock carabiner not screw locked. As long as I am weighted, no problem. I do screw them locked when I see this. With SRT, I am continuously weighted all the time.

    I built this one from a Primal step and a piece of aluminum vinyl fence corner stiffener. And built a wooden one which is not as rigid.

    Sewing Machine Deals for the DIY Guys

    I have sewed saddles with no zig zag stitches and didn't feel the need to. I read where zig zag is used on stretchy material since the stitches can stretch.

    Carabiners for the fearfull not for arguing sake

    That looks good after trying destructive testing. In the condition it's in it would still be holding you in the tree. If it had fractured, then no.

    Gri gri vs mad rock question

    The Madrock Safeguard doesn't have a spring to hold it open when not weighted so it is not as good for belaying but is better for just climbing since it does not pop open when unweighted.
