Trekking Pole Connector
I was looking for a simple way connect my trekking poles to pitch my Shangri La 3.
18″ of 1″ tubular webbing (get it at a climbing shop)
2 double-sided hook and loop wraps
Insert pole tips into the tubular webbing (the bite of the carbide tip on the nylon holds it really well).
Wrap ends tight.
I can place 100lbs of body weight on this easy…I’m pretty sure the poles will break before the connection fails.
Everything weighs just under 0.8 oz.
I tried it with a shorter length of webbing, but 18″ seems the minimum necessary to keep the poles from bending at the connection under heavy pressure.
