Thanks Knotty for posting my pic that I referenced (hangs head in lazy shame).
I still use this system, and will use it on my DIY hammock this weekend.
Makes set up so quick and easy and adjustments are a snap. Plus, once you get your hammock set up the way you want it, you can just unclip it if you need to thread anything through like pea pods or bugnets. You don't have to thread them through before you attach to the trees.
I will go to whoopies soon, but this system is so easy with just a minimal weight penalty.
