I didn't know you could register your hammock with Hennesy. If they will let me at this point I'll do that.

I didn't go overboard with the tie off. Just pulled the rope through the tree hugger loops hand tight and started the figure 8 wrapping.

I sent off an email to Hennesy earlier today, but have had no reply yet. I will let you know what happens.

Thanks for all the support and good advice. I had considered the use of biners, and am going to at a minimum include those in my setup.
I'm sure Hennessy will send you a new set. They have pretty good customer service.
In the mean time if you need a loaner let me know and I'll hook you up.
