I'm giving my Clark Ultralite an upgrade. I have 30' of mule tape on the way for a possible DIY hammock, but I want to try this out.
Thread the mule tape through the channel at the end of the hammock and tie it off somehow. On the other end of the tape, tie another loop and clip in a carabiner.
To set it up, I would wrap the mule tape around a tree twice and come back to the line going to the hammock. Tie a marlin-spike hitch, and instead of using a toggle, clip in the carabiner and tighten it up.
What do you guys think? Will it work?
