Updated review after order received

Titanium hook and loopalien are great! Orange finish on loopalien will be good if it ever falls off outdoors. Much smaller than I expected. Great finishes on my zing-it tarp ridgeline. Paired with Nama claws to go knot free. Shipping took weeks on senders end, only 48 hours in USPS hands. Otherwise great service.

Awesome gear!

These things rock a great improvement over my “bling” I had before. Easy to use. Many options for rope tensioning. Plus they come in orange!

Works as advertised, though heavier and less intuitive than alternative hardware.
