    Problem is that the hitch slips if you use zing-it. The line is too slippery.

    If you're clipping the Hook Worm to shock cord, just squeeze the hook a bit tighter so it won't fall off when the shock cord is slacked. When it's stretched tight and under tension, the Worm is going nowhere but you'll be able to unhook it from the thinner stretched shock cord. It will work, but I would switch to Tarp Worms.. at this point, Tarp Worms are the ONLY piece of hardware I carry anywhere on my tarp(s) or hammock(s).

    You wonder why I love to sleep alone, in the woods, in a hammock.. I wonder why you don't...

    I've used Zing-it, lash-it, and other generic 1.75 mm throw line with no problems using a marlin spike. Essentially splice a loop on one end of the tie out, so it can be larksheaded in the grommett or grossgain... then bury the end for a good termination.... then use a marlin spike (using the tent stake as the toggle), pull the line tight, then place the stake in the ground.
