This system if for double hammocks made before September 2017 (Vertex, VX and Double-V models). If you have a Clark double hammock from after August 2017, locate the matching Timp-Hitch system in our accessory section.
The Timp-Hitch system includes:
- The highest grade Spectra slings (4 included). The Spectra slings are made to specifications to hold at least 2000 lbs. Adjust their length from 2 feet to 6 feet (0.6 to 1.82 m) which should reach trees up to about 19 feet (5.8 m) apart. These 16-thread lines are sub 3/16 in. in width.
- The Timp-Hitch attachment point (4 included). You will insert the aluminum Timp-Hitch directly in the sleeves of your Clark hammock to create an easy attachment point for the adjustable Spectra slings.
- Tree protection straps (3 included) with protective 2-inch width that is required in many areas.
The aluminum Timp-Hitch attaches to the sleeves of your Clark hammock to create an easy attachment point for the adjustable Spectra slings. The size and shape of the Timp-Hitch spread the bed fabric evenly (unlike thin continuous loops and small diameter lines). The Timp-Hitch also provides an excellent drip-point and two ways to easily hook on your Spectra slings.
This double hammock system weighs 12.8 oz (364 g).
The system also comes with a new anti-stress strap that connects between the head end Timp-hitches to keep the hammock from becoming stressed if the head-end trees are far apart. You will need to discard the strap that came with your hammock for that purpose since the new strap is a different size.
Note that only three adjustable tree protection straps are included because both foot-end Spectra lines attach to the same tree strap.
