Bring rope back thru the ring, make one wrap around line leading back to the "biner, pull tight, pinch wrap and drop bight loop between pinch and tree. Snug loop towards pinch and run tag end thru bight loop and tighten. This is all that I need to prevent any slippage with the thick HH suspension line. YMMV with thinner line. Take remaining tag towards the hammock and tie a half hitch for a drip string. After adjusting the ring to the necessary location, I can complete the process in fifteen seconds or so. What I've done is duplicated the principle of a trucker's hitch that is just as strong, easily adjustable, and yet is quick to untie.

    Well I guess I am an oddity. I am using my rig the way that it came shipped to me and so far so good. This pic is from my recent trip through Harriman State Park. Lots of people just refer to it as Bear Mountain Park. Was doing a bit of cool weather camping. Maybe got into the high20's at its coldest.

    Guess I have seen no reason to consider other methods with my Speer. The four-wrap is just so simple.

    I was on top of Bear mountain the other day, took about an hour out of my drive home and setup my hammock and read my book.

    Haven't had it real-world yet, but my latest is webbing for the trees with a homemade buckle cleat that my hammock rope (Spyderline 2.8mm) ties off to. I copied the design from andersj and love it.

    I also have an SMC ring on the other end of the webbing instead of a sewn loop.
