Through the whip suspension straps
Here is how I attach the support webbing to my hammocks. As you can guess it's pretty easy. Just fold the hammock ends, tie a loop in the webbing, lay the webbing on the top of the hammock and and whip it all together.
Usually the first time you lie in it it will pull down to the knot and stop. I have never had a whipping pull off.
There's really no advantage to it except aesthetic and, maybe, you can use a couple of inches more of the hammock body.
The photo above was one of the first prototypes, now I use the full webbing with no sheet bend in it. However, if you used the double ring attachment you could do it this way and leave about twoo feet to attach the rings to.
hammock support experiments
a couple ways i want to experiment w/ hammock supports
(1)New support attachment experiments. photos 1-5 are of the first illistration. i haven`t done the second yet.
(2)Support rope whipped in hammock... before adding body weight.
(3)After body weight... looks good so far.
(4)The knot on the inside popped through. i bounced pretty hard on the hammock, but it shows how much pressure there is between the inside knot and the taught hammock fabric.
(5)The hole the knot made (after removing the whipping).
