I've been trying to find a simpler way to attach my stock nylon hammock to my tree straps. It originally had a heavy line through the end, with a big knot and a metal s-hook at each end. While exploring solutions other people had been using, I narrowed it down the amsteel loop and ring a lot of people on the forum seem to like using.
Since amsteel line or loops aren't readily available in my area that I know of, I figured I'd skip the middleman, and just use a large climbing carabiner right through the hammock ends... since it's a climbing biner it's more than strong enough, is light, and has no sharp edges to damage the hammock material.
Does anyone foresee any issues with this idea? Or has anyone else tried it?
