I've seen a couple folks with Nano 7 hammocks replace the included carabiners in the end-channels with cord. For example Sgt. Rock posted a picture of his:
Can someone enlighten a newbie on how this can be done safely? Sgt Rock mentions he switched to Dynaglide whoopies and wrapped some paracord shell around them to keep it from sawing through the sewn channel. I get the general idea but I am not very familiar with knots and I've never tried a whoopie sling. I'm thinking about trying this but I'm not sure how to duplicate what you see above in the picture, and I don't want to end up on the ground
Any other suggestions on what I could do to replace the carabiners? For suspension the only thing on hand I have right now is JRB tri-glides + straps and a pair of dutch clips. I was thinking of trying the tri-glides backwards from the usual use, putting the dutch clips on the tree end, and the tri-glide adjustable buckle where it can be adjusted at the hammock end. That way I don't have to thread the tri-glide each time I set it up. Can I do that safely by putting a knot in the end of the hammock and attaching the strap with a larks head? If so how should I knot or ball the end of the hammock?
