    Where do you guys find your webbing?

    Hey guys, just got my hammock in the mail, and I'm planning on leaving this weekend for a trip. The only problem is I can't seem to find any webbing. I've been to ****'s and home depot so far, and I can't find anything that might work. I've found Rachet straps at Home depot, but the working weight load was about 300 pounds, which seems way too low for hammocking. The same story with the climbing rope, its all rated for 200 lbs.
    Where can I find something to use to suspend my hammock, without ordering something online, because I'm worried an online order would take too long to arrive before my trip? I'm starting to get worried about being able to hammock camp this weekend

    Harbor Freight? Northern Tools? Menard's? Ace Hardware? Tractor Supply? Any of these near you? They should have tie down straps that you can get for this weekend. After that, look at to order some proper straps on line. Most of the cottage hammock makers make up strap sets of their own design or can make to your custom design too. Best of luck to you!

    P.S. Here are some 2" x 10' straps rated to 2000 pounds from Tractor Supply: Click

    There is actually a tractor supply right behind me, I'll go check real quick, how much webbing/ratchet straps should I get?

    Ok, so tractor supply had what I needed, but it was fairly expensive. I'm thinking I could probably overnight something from strapworks for roughly the same price, and get exactly what I want.
    There is a little problem of how I'm going to adjust my hammock if I get webbing though. I was planning on using the ratchet strap to make adjusting my hammock uncomplicated, how would I adjust the sag of my hammock with the webbing? Also how much webbing should I order? I've never hammocked before, so I'm not sure how much I'll need.
    One last question, would the standard oval carabiner's work? I'm planning on using the carabiner to connect the webbing to a tree, and the the webbing to my hammock.

    would something like this work on 1" polyester webbing?

    What is the make and model of your hammock? What type of suspension does it have?

    It's a byer moskito hammock, it doesn't come with suspension, just the hammock and the bug netting.

    Ok, so I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this with the proper equipment, so I think I actually might just order a suspension kit
    How does this sound? it costs more than my actual hammock, but I guess that's what I get for not thinking the suspension through
