    Ok I picked up Strapworks Simple Straps. I got a pair of 12'ers and a pair of 2'ers. Now I just need to get a couple biners and 4 decending rings and I should be all set.

I then need a pair of 12' poly straps with 3" loops to go around the trees. Then what do I use to hook the 12' straps to the hammock? Do I go directly to the short strap biner and then cinch the 12'ers up to adjust hang? Or do I set the 12'ers, and then use a length of climbing rope to go between them and the short strap biners?

    Actually, it would be awesome if someone could just lay me out the complete kit of what I need.

    Thanks!

    Here's one way of doing it. You can also attach the rope going through the end of the hammock directly to the cinch buckle or rings. Personally I prefer the cinch buckles as I believe they are more secure. Notice that in Neo's pic he's tied a backup knot on his rings. I can only assume he does that because he's afraid they might slip. No need to do that with the buckles....once they are set they are set. I've tried both...the rings have slipped....the buckles have not. Either will work.

    Great advise about using cinch buckles. I love them. I've used rings in the past but use the cinch buckles now for the reason Miguel just stated.

    Wow, with a minimum purchase of 5 and $9 in shipping, those two cinch buckles end up costing $24. That's pretty steep. Is there a cheaper way to go?

    That's one reason a lot of us use the rings.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Someone here may be willing to sell you a couple. Always good to have an extra couple of pairs lying around for future hammocks. The 4 SMC rings will run you around $11
    plus shipping. Not a huge difference. Well worth it IMO.

    That is exactly what happened to me, then one of the short straps with the cinch buckle got lost, ended up using all 5.
