    Thx guy lot of good ideas I will try some. But no hardware, I like to keep it simple. I converted all my hammocks from cinch buckles to continuous loops to tie my hammocks to suspension with a becket hitch. I almost forgot, on another thread Shug told me to tie my strap to the drip line, I will try this too

    Thx everyone !

Come to think of it you could slap a dutch buckle on the end of your straps and do the same thing. Dutch buckles are about 10 grams and the dominators 4 grams. Here is a pic of one plus one with about 5 feet of straps wrapped around it.

    Dunno how I'd avoided hearing about these before, but I'm glad I have now!

    Little piece of velcro will do the trick.
