The "tree" end of the webbing has a loop that is sewen into it. My plan is to just wrappit around the tree a few times pull the working end/buckle through the loop and toward the hammock. I haven't had time to get a thread going in the suspension system section. On Sunday I will get a post up demonstrating the whole system. I appreciate all the tips and info all have offered.
Ok I have a write up on my suspension system going in its own thread now. Perkolady sorry for the hijack that ensued.

I need to go check a couple of mine.
In contrast, the onrope buckle is symmetrical, and I can't see that it makes any difference which way it is threaded.
I have two hammocks rigged with cinch buckles, AHE on one end, and onrope on the other. I have been comparing them for a couple of weeks, and the AHE buckle is the winner. Beautiful design and execution, very easy to operate.
The onrope buckle is good, too. I like it's compact size (about half that of the AHE buckle) and low cost. It's in ease of operation that it loses points...it can be a little balky when letting out webbing. By contrast, the AHE buckle is smooth as butter.
I hope that buttter is not straight of the icebox! :laugh:
