Just got given some tree huggers straps as part of a new hammock bundle but the have no loops sewn in. Is their any reason I can't just marlin spike to the doubled up ends?
ie. tie the marlin spike hitch using both free ends together having wrapped the webbing around the tree once or twice.
It seems blindingly obvious to me now - and requires no d-rings, clips, elephant trunks, mailons, snap rings or sewing.
Does anyone know if this will/won't work? And if it will then why isn't everyone doing it?
