I found this little thingy in the marine section of local sporting goods store (Academy), and thought it may work to just "weave" my hammock line... 200# weight limit seems to be a drawback.
Will post results promptly upon my return. (have to go to the farm where theres trees...)
Also grabbed one of these do-hickies http://niteize.com/productdetail.php...product_id=137
to see what it may do too. (150# limit.. )
