Another way to go about it. What I did was splice a piece of dynaglide with two dead eyes on each end. Ran the dynaglide through the channel at the end of the hammock. Then I pulled one end of the dynaglide through the other ends dead eye tightening it causing it to bunch up. Then I wrapped the dynaglide around the end of the hammock whipping it into a wiped end. To secure it I ran the dynaglide underneath all the loops I made around the end of the hammock. This takes the stress off of the hammock fabric and puts it on the knot (gathered end of the hammock). I used the mason line that WB Guy provided to pull the dynaglide through the channel end and that was very easy. If you need 2 sections of dynaglide with dead eyes on each end to whip your hammock with and want me to bring them to TD for you I can help you whip them their or just give you the sections of dynaglide to whip them yourself. I could also do them in amsteal or make chain links if you would like. I however prefer the double dead eye method rather then a chain link.
However if their is no channel at the end of the hammock and it's just wiped then I guess you could just do the same thing with the cord without running it through a channel.
I use this method cause it makes for easy attachment and detachment of my suspension system. I use woopies with Dutch woopie hooks spliced onto the adjustable end of the woopie sling. Larks head the dead eye end to the tree hugger. Allowing me to set up my tree straps on the tree and deploy my hammock under neath the tarp in a rain storm. Also allows you to easily store you wet and or sappy suspension system outside of your hammock bag.
Ok YMMV and hope this helps, see you on Saturday.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
