    Is this safe?

    I need to know if this is a safe arrangement.

    I just made a 8" (16") continuous loop with 6" buries. It came out great. I attached this to the hammock with a larks head throught the channel. I then laid out my adjustable SRL, and lined up the loops. Then I took the fixed loop from whoopie sling and tied a larks head (through both the SRL and continuous loop. I labeled the picture, but the knot is not clear.

    I intend to do this to the other side as well and hang in it this weekend.

    My intention is to more efficiently attach the SRL (and raise it up slightly) as well as giving a better connecting point for the hooks on my UQ.
