I am knot a not guy.

It seems most people with a channel hammock slip some sort of CL thru the channel and then stick the tag end thru the loop pulling it tight? This creates a very tight gathered end at the channels of the hammock.

Is there a benefit/negative to having a "loose" CL connection? If I was able to create one permanent CL running thru the channel and which would keep the gathered end "loose"?

Not sure if I explained that very well, hopefully you can decipher it and give me some feedback.
