    Best knot for this application

    What would be the best knot for attaching this special ring to my HH? It will be used with 1" straps. Seen this kind of ring in use before and it works great with that width of straps. Has anybody got a pic or a link please?

    What ya got to tie on to it. You could make a continuous loop with the clover inside the loop then thread it through the Hennessey and back around itself. If your using hollow line that is.

    Careful subbing in an ornamental ring. With the odd shape it may not hold?

    I would take a loop (continuous being the coolest), wrap that around the hammock as your main attachment point, and then larkshead onto your ring.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!
