....It's kind of hard to envision exactly how it works, but you basically take the Dutch Hook around the tree, clip it to the loop you've attached to the tarp, then move to the other side. Take the line around the tree, tension at the Dutch Flyz and secure it. From there, weirdly enough, you can slide the tarp back and forth between the two trees to get it centered over the hammock....Oh, also: I put about a two foot section of amsteel around the Zing-It on both sides, to wrap around the tree. The Zing-It slides through the Amsteel and saves the tree from being sawed into by the Zing-It. Pretty nice.
Thanks for the refreshment, Kyle.
Need to try that out. Love the idea of FREE sliding instead of the prusik loop for adjustment.
