Mule tape will work on that leg splaying too
I have my wood and poles, but haven't gone any further, as I didn't have the amsteel to finish things up. I don't know why I didn't think about the mule tape? How do you do mule tape prussiks though...and where are the prussiks needed? I'm a bit confused about that.....unless it's just the actual loop and not a working prusik, like a half hitch, then I get it....maybe
I used a quick link to connect to an open hole on the hinge. The mule tape loops are just that: Fisherman's knot loops. I did them big enough to double loop on the top rail (thus the prussik) so they won't slide.
I actually made 4 of them: 2 are larksheaded to the hammock end and then looped over the top rail. Pics tomorrow... I'm off to Trick-or-Treat!
