comment How do I tie a slackline with only carabiners and webbing?
Most primitive setups do not use double carabiners like in the photo above. Also, the pulleys are not necessary for shorter slacklines rigged in this way. And regarding the forged ring; you can actually use a carabiner instead of the ring too. Although it will be much bulkier, and might be bad for your webbing.

Tensioning is no problem with a primitive system (the rigging method asked about in the question). The multiple wrappings of the webbing works as a primitive pulley-system, multiplying the pulling force. Primitives work for slacklines of up to 50 meters in length.
