Hey, everyone.  Was looking to get some 3" metal rings for making a tripod (you just put three poles into the ring & when you extend them, it'll hold).  Heard you can get them from a saddle supply shop, but I don't have one of those around here.  I think that I found a site with them, but I'm not sure if they're the right ones.  Does anyone know what I'm talking about?  What are those rings called & where can I get them?  I figure 4 or 5 of them would be enough for a quick camp set-up (four small tripods for the corners of a cot & one for a cooking tripod).  

Yeah, you COULD just use that Canadian Jam Knot Lash, but I saw that trick & thought it was very cool- as well as very quick to set up & take down.  There's probably a lot of uses for those rings, but I actually can't think of any except for this.  Anyone else got any?
