    Well most people put a loop on the end of the tree straps and feed the other end through that... So it's going to be as tight as possible the moment you put your weight on it.

    If OP is using the standard HH suspension/strap system, it doesn't work quite like that. I've had my straps fall down the tree while I was trying to make the figure 8, but not after I had hung the hammock. The tree bark and weight of the hammock hold it fine.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!
