    What knot used on Blackbird Suspension?

    I'm putting original tri-rings and webbing suspension back on my Blackbird. What knot does Brandon use to make sure cord doesn't slip? Picture attached. (Thanks for pic, Paul.)

    Something wrong with the Whoopie Slings that were so lovingly made for you? Anyway, to join the two ends of the Amsteel together, I think that's a fisherman's knot and the whole thing attaches to the hammock with a larkshead thru the ridgeline and holding loops.

    I like them for 3 season, but they've frozen up on me in winter twice so far. So I'm planning on switching out since it's easy enough to do. Thanks for the knot info, Hooch!

    i'm using a triple fisherman's to make the loop, and a larkshead to attach that loop to the hammock.
