Both Home Depot and Loews have 1" , 1 1/2" and 2" rings but the load weight is only 200lbs for each. Is there a civil engineer out there who can tell me whether or not two of them on each end of the hammock adds up to 400 lbs? and is there less than 200 lbs of stress on each end of the hammock with a 250 lb man inside?
Also, is there a way to use the ring bukle system with the stock claytor webbing? (I can't get any suitable replacement rope between now and Friday). Can I run both straps through one set of rings, then clip the ring to a carabiner and the carabiner to a slap strap (both of which I already have). If it worked, the only advanage would be that I could easilt adjust the hang. Or do I need to use one set of rings on each separate strap?
