Sorry if this has been asked to death. I searched and saw a few references, but no definitive answer, I don't think.

Does anyone have experience using the garda hitch to attach their hammock support ropes to a pair of rings?

If so, do the rings have to be held close together, i.e. sewn into a small loop in one end of a strap, or could you have one on either end of a long strap that would meet in the front (hammock side) of a tree that you could then tie your rope to with the garda?

Thanks in advance for any help.
