    Obsessed about suspension systems!

    Well, I don't even have, yet, my HH HLBA, and I've been thinking about suspension systems, constantly! I bought some webbing and some rings and discovered that a girth hitch often falls apart when not under tension, even with sewn in loops (which I don't have). So, here is my solution for attaching the hammock line to tree huggers - using webbing (with free ends -- no sewn loops), two rings girth hitched to each end of the webbing (so that the webbing is protected from rope rub) and then locked (via sort of a barrel hitch with the final wrap threaded through the girth hitch) and a modified HH tree hugger knot (it's more symmetrical), finished off with a chain knot to stow the loose end and provide an easy untie sequence.
