Hi, Need some feedback on Yankee Hill/YHM-9756 single point sling end-plate. Is it bulky? Because it looks wider than say Daniel Defense end-plate. I need one for HK style hook single point sling. Thanks in advance

IIRC, I thought they were stamped steel instead of aluminum, which means they tend to leave sharper edges. That isn't as much of an issue with a metal hook as it is with the adaptors that run a sling through themselves. I'll try to dig one up and double check for you.

They are also going to be more bulky than the other style sling plate, which is another reason why I'm not a huge fan of them. I run a Daniel Defense sling plate, and while I wish there was a company that made a slightly lower profile unit, the DD is currently the beast to beat. I am also only using the TAG Industries A.S.P. Single Point Sling, and I already have a quick release unit built into the sling, so I'm able to avoid using any metal hooks....

Thanks guys for your replies! I also look at Daniel Defense but do you think its loop would bind with a metal hook attachment? Because it looks very narrow.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 12:18:42 PM EST
The metal hook can bind with ANY attachment, which is why I won't use them anymore.

Damn, J,

With the design of that sling plate and the overall kudos for the ASP, you'll have me giving up my two point yet. Any idea on when you'll get them to production? I'm thinking I'll have to do a combo order...

Thanks JTrusty! I was ready to order a Daniel Defense sling mount but fortunately they are out of stock, even checked your site. Again thanks for the info I guess I will get a YHM.

Use the same exact set-up (DD Sling Plate/Tag Sling). Researched the heck outta it (plus asked JTrusty a million questions) and decided on this. Everything I heard was that the DD was far more superior, stronger and smoother than the rest. Worth the extra $.

Oh, and Stick? I love how you illustrate your points with photo(s)!

I think most of us here are visual learners, plus I enjoy taking the pictures, so it seems to work out....

I use this from YHM with HK snap-hooks. Zero problems.

Link Posted: 1/10/2006 7:35:17 AM EST
I use the one Clubsoda22 shows with only one loop.
No problems and low drag.

Happy belated and such.
Any idea when the new unit will be available? Is it going to be ambi or will a right and left handed versions be made? I also like the shorter sling slot.

Finally!!!!! I see no point of having loops sticking out on both sides short of having it as a pool weapon or dedicated training weapon.

Word, yo. I don't want to dick up a perfectly well-machined item with a Dremel if I can get a right hand point.

I've had to use my mad dremel skills more than once to fix an ambi sling mount......

I kept an ambi plate on one so my brother could shoot it, but he's gonna have to pony up for his own soon.
I'm just going to wait for Jason to get his production run in and order another sling and plate together.

I have a YHM slotted slngle point sling mount and it sucks. It sticks out too much. The reason I've been leaning toward an HK clip style with a single "donut hole" style because the donut hole sticks out down away from the receiver at an angle, not to the side where it gets in the way. I hope this makes some sense.

Is this idea still a go, are we getting close, or are we still a ways out on development?


You mean these?

Mine looks like this: No wonder it gets in the way and I don't like it. Might just have to buy one of yours...

TS. I've never seen that YHM part with a slot. It looks like all theirs are just holes. You sure it's YHM?

Hoping to get one by next week, but I've got a second lap around Texas in as many weeks from Tues-Thur, so it will be a while before I can play with mine.

I use the same one with a single hole and HK hooks. I just put one on my Colt last night, which was a complete virgin until I added that part.

Can these be used on an A2 stock, or do you have to use the nylon loop?

how about a pad for that single point sling?....something to keep things a bit more comfortable during a full day of training if ya know what i mean....anybody make one...?
Link Posted: 4/15/2006 5:49:54 AM EST
Pads are trouble looking for a place to happen. Let Tampax keep them.
