    That's a common disclaimer; the WLL is 2550#, which means it is stronger than most hammock suspensions. I use 'em, and they don't make my home look like a Tractor Supply showcase. Big plus.

    One knot at a time. Carry a length of cord in your pocket, and tie that one knot over and over, until you own it. You can tie your shoes, can't you? Same deal.
