No problem with the loop thru the buckle
OK, the loop works just fine. It appears to hold tight, though I've only tested for a 5 minute hang or so. Instant loosening ability. If it did tend to slip a little as the hours went by, I wonder if an additional half hitch or 2 around the webbing would help. Has anybody tried this or the tent stake?
Another thought: If you were not doing one of the above and you could not get loose, couldn't you just loosen up the lashing or prussick you tied to the buckle? It might slow you up some tieing and retying, but it would beat cutting a strap.
What angle would you guye guess these ropes are with the hammock loaded?
BTW, this testing is being done at a good 100* ( forecast hi 102*!)
