OK, I got my WBBB 1.7 but needed some carabiners to hang it. I went to the climbing store on Sunday and the part time kid didn't have a clue as to what ratings were. I ended up with this

with this information

Weight: 49 g
Material: hot-forged aluminum 7000
Color: gray frame, orange gate
Breaking strength:
- major axis: 23 kN
- open gate: 9.5 kN
- cross-loaded: 10 kN
Gate opening: 20 mm
CE EN 12275 type B / UIAA
3-year guarantee

So being a n00b when it comes to hammocks my question is will this work for my tree straps and hold my 250lb fat ass?

Thanks for the help.......................and laughing ....uncontrollably
