    I agree completely. There are a multitude of ways to go about making a hammock suspension. I make no claims that the method I outlined is the best way, but it is a good way to build a simple, safe, and proven setup.

    Thanks Again everyone I have been on the phone w strapworks about doing something similar to the SlapStraps using polypro and think I might end up going that route. Thank You very much Angry Spaarow for taking the time to create the post regarding the suspension, it was great. I am just leary about modifying my own gear, I will probably get over it quick as I did with my modifiying kayak.

    I always thought that the slapstraps design was kind of limiting, because it was only minimally adjustable. Good luck, though. Post pics of your solution.
