    stupid larkshead question

    so heres the issue: i woke up with little sleep today and wanted to figure a better way to hook an all in one type suspension to the ENO DN ive got, rather than big ole biners.


    so the suspension is (from left to right) SS, TH, WS, DR w/ a CL and one end of the adjustable RL, DR again with the CL and WS/TH/SS



    so heres my problem. i have one CL attached to the DR and the eno, larksheaded at both ends of it. all is well.

    now im trying to figure out how in the heck to do it to the other side. nothing has worked and it took me 15 minutes to undo the knots in the hammock and lines i twisted it into.


    any ideas on how to attach the CL thru the end channel and to the DR??

    assuming I understand the acronyms - run the CL through the channel with the DR already attached to the CL - on the open end of the CL form a larks head in your fingers by reaching through the loop with your index and middle fingers and then gripping the CL between the two fingers - using your other hand pull the part of the CL that crosses the back of your fingers back toward the hammock while still holding the CL between the index and middle fingers - stick a finger into the larks head thus formed and enlarge it to the point the DR will fit through - put the DR through the finger formed LH and snug it up - done

    this might help. first pic is of the side in question, obviously i can take the continuous loop off and run it thru the end channel if itll be easier. the adjustable RL is running to the right, tree strap to the left. the other end is the "finished" end, with the RL running to the left and strap off to the right. that side was easy because i just pulled everything thru the larks head and was good.

    im hoping to make both ends the same.
