I am connecting a sewn channel hammock to a single steel ring on each end. How far from the end of the hammock should the rings be, and with what knot do I attach them? I have it now as such: Rope doubled, and threaded through the channel. Loose ends put through the bight and snugged down. (think larks-head through the channel) One of the individual ends is inserted through the steel ring, and both are connected with a double fishermen's bend.
Is this sufficient? Am I missing something stupid? Thank you in advance.
P.S. I plan for now to be tying a line between the ring and the treehugger for suspension. I thought the rings could be used for an adj ridgeline later.
