    Caution: Do NOT hang from Wally World webbing.....

    hehehe... guess the title says it all. I usually tell my wife "if it will hold 'Lard Butt' it'll hold you." Well, it didn't hold Lard Butt. I must say that it had more than a few hangs on it already, and it was hung around a square treated 4X4 plus there was a repetitive stress corner but.... crap I dropped on the bottom 4X4 whilst floating nicely in the new bridge.

    Do I get membership in a club or something?

    Well, we'll see what happens with a strapworks webbing.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    well, that stinks! I always wonder when wearand tear is going to become an issue with my name brand or Harbor Freight webbing. Or HH rope. I hope you escaped uninjured!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    You're now a member of the "Ka-Ching Club:" A 'knock-off' of the more popular "Mile High Club" it's where you get release below 6 feet. The only requirement is to use 'knock-off' Chinese equipment.

    I got dropped on a test hang in the basement. It was only the second use with Polypro straps. The strap broke at the rings. I noticed some abrasion on the straps and it must have been enough to tear though. Dropped me right on my butt on the cement floor.

    Me too! but it was because I didn't check my tie offs. I didn't tie my knots for real to the tree huggers because i wanted to get the hammock even between the poles and once I had it set up I was so excited I forgot to tie them for real and kerplunk. I going to pretend it happens to everyone and not just me.

    Sorry but that made me laugh out loud and spew Cheerwine all over my Laptop screen!

    I would suggest buying some webbing from Ed Speer.

    Now where are those LCD Screen wipes?

    Well.. from now on it's pretty much strapworks for me.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I forgot to mention, I didn't get my straps from Wallyworld, I bought from a strap manufacturer online. I'm guessing I didn't buy heavy enough straps. But now what I am wondering is how long will heavier straps last with regular wear? The abrasion was caused by strap on strap contact.
    I've setup my hammock with the HH ropes and tree huggers I removed. I still use the rings for setup and adjustment and I gives me the convenience and ease I was looking for.

    Good straps like those from Strapworks will last. Like all your gear, just inspect regularly.
