At this point in time, I'm using a UCR with Dutch Whoopie Hooks.
I also love this sliding toggle. So, I'm keeping my Locked Brummel on my Hennessy Hammock. (About 4 inches from end of hammock) I'll make a 1 1/2 foot cord, which will have a Whoopie Hook spliced on, & hook to the hammock, and a Locked Brummel to go around the toggle.
The whoopie hook acts as a drip stop, and since I have them, I might as well use them.
I hope that makes sense. I'll have to put it together and post a picture.
well fellows. im going to be doing a lot of experimenting with this set up this weekend, i will post some pictures and my results. im hoping this will work out fairly nicely.
I have tried the original idea using wooden toggles, and while it does work I wasn't over excited about how tight the half hitch had pulled and how much effort it took to loosen it for adjustment. My toggle was about 7/8" dia. I am wondering how much more difficult it would be with a small diameter toggle. Anyone else had the same issue?
Well, 3/4 dowel I had snapped like a twig and sent me crashing right on my Cash Cow. (Butt)
So, went back read over everything, drilled another hole in a new dowel, hung the hammock a little lower and BAMM!
So, I'm going back to UCR's for the time being until I can get some 7/8 steel.
It could have been the wood I was using as well. I'm going to the Hardware store and see what they have. Small town I live in, so I'm sure they only have a few choices.
The one that I made of hickory works well.
