I have been playing with Tee-Dees, HeadChange4U, et al Single Line Suspension after reading ALL of the threads and Tee-Dee's extensive tutorial. The crux of the matter for me is after you tie the single line tree to tree then how do you center the hammock on that line. Although a Prussic attachment would be ideal if it worked, Tee-Dee's experience and others are not encouraging. However- in Tee-Dee's early write up, HERE
, he used a Larks Head to the single line (instead of a prussic ) with a Marlin Spike stopper knot in front of it to keep the Larks Head from slipping. I think if I use a Prussic instead of a Larks Head I can easily slide the hammock along the SLS to center then quickly put in a Marlin Spike stopper.
Tee-Dee moved on from this early method and simplified his approach, but I seem to drag my hammock along the ground a lot when using his latter method of attaching the hammock directly to the Marlin Spike stopper knot. So I am going to give the Prussic with stopper knot a try.
