clamcleats, cord locks, guy line tensioners etc on 05/03/2010 22:09:18 MDT Print View

I'm new to the whole UL thing and even newer to MYOG and was wondering about sources for misc. objects for MYOG like:

clamcleats, cord locks, guy line tensioners, cords, buckles, various kinds of clips and binding devices etc..

The point is I don't know exactly what I want for my project but if I can browse a large selection of miscellanea, I'll get some ideas. Presently, I see a few objects on the random accessories page of Gossamer Gear and on ZPacks but there's got to be a better resource..

A single good source would be great since I can combine the items to save on shipping.

Since this is a lightweight backpacking forum, I would recommend against cord locks and tensioners in favor of knots like the taught line hitch and the tarbell hitch, both of which work very well and instructions for tying them are all over the internet.
