Would these straps work for securing the end of a hammock?
Also they have these Loop straps which I thought might work on the end of the hammock. No sewing to do
Just run the loop in thru and pull tight (this would replace the rope in the end where the S hook attaches.
Not sure they are long enough though.
This leads to another question should that be 2 different pcs of straps/webbing or is one pc ok.
Are these straps the same as what most people use? If not what is the differences?
Also Risk talks about straps/webbing he got a Wal Mart. Does that strap/webbing work as well as anything else. It may be a little a more expensive but you have it quickly.
ed speer sells webbing on his website,i plann on buying some webbing from him.
