SMC engineers advise that the descending rings can elongate somewhat at loads of approximately 800 pounds. They will not fail before the rated load but they can elongate. Quoting SMC, "D-Rings deform under load by design. They change to an oval shape with straight sides. This is where their strength comes from." This is not a defect and is not warrantable. Should this happen, you have most likely done something very wrong with your suspension setup. Remember, we always recommend a suspension angle of at least 30 degrees to horizontal. See Derek Hansen's handy Hammock Hang Calculator to see for yourself how suspension angles can drastically effect the load on your hammock and suspension.
