    Hennessy U\L Backpacker A-Sym whoopie conversion

    I Purchace a set of Whoopie slings from AHE and watched Ken's video on how to add them to my HHULBB but my hammock only has one hole in the end therefore not the same as in the video. Just wondering if anyone else has done a Whoopie conversion on a HHULBB. The original cord went though the hole wrapped around four times and back up though the holeand ridgeline and was tied off back to itself.

    Help please

    Jeff, sorry I didn't remember it before, but this was discussed in the video thread. Read the posts leading up to post 50. There is one solution in post 50.

    Copy the stock hitch, and when you run the fixed eye back through the hole, run the adjustable loop of the sling through the fixed eye and pull tight. Keep dressing the hitch until everything is snug. I like to weight the hammock prior to putting the end cover back on. Just to make sure it doesnt need a re-dress.

    Thanks guys I will copy the stock lashing. Good point to do a test hang before I put cover back on.
