you guy's are on it tonite.
i agree with grizz and bb. i would like to add to what bb said. you will need several feet to get through the chanel, this leaves the rings far from the hammock. they should be as close as possible to the end of the hammock for when the trees are really close together.
if you don't want to tie any knots or do any sewing, do what shadowmass does. go to rei in the climbing section and buy a short runner. (made by black diamond and others) it's 11/16" dyneema webbing sewn into a loop/circle. buy the smallest one (8" perhaps) and larks head your hardware with one end and your hammock with the other. (you will need a runner for each end of the hammock obviously)
in order to larks head your hammock, you must create an end mass. easiest way for you is to use the webbing that's in there, cinch it tight and wrap it down below a couple times, tie it off, cut off the excess.
