I saw the videos on YouTube about using a gardia (spelling) hitch around a couple of descender rings as a quick set up method. It looked like a great idea, however, I have heard that this actually stressed out the ropes of the hammock. Is this true? Has anyone had these problems?
Also, are there any other quick set up methods that can be used with the stock ropes that would be better than tying the figure 8 four times?
I have heard that a clove hitch around a carabiner does the trick.
Thanks for the info
