The Whoopie hook attaches to the hammock. If you look at this picture here at this link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/one_thi...1995/lightbox/
The hook is to the left and would be attached to the hammock. You'll also see the Klemheist knot to the right, which is attached to a soft shackle via an locked Brummel. (Fixed eye)
The Klemheist knot will work, however you have to have it longer than 6" for it to hold. More like 10". Adding all the extra cord doesn't make sense as I'm not saving any weight over the Whoopie Sling or the UCR in the end.
