    Strapworks specifics

    Hello,

    I am a hanging newbie, and I just bought a used HH expedition, and it didn't come with the webbing straps, and as I understand from searching the forums, Strapworks sounds like a good place to buy some straps. My question is in reference to length, and end configuration.

    - What length of strap should i buy?
    - How many inches should my loop be?


    any input/suggestions appreciated.

    Have a look at this thread. It is an older thread, but I explained/answered most of the HH/Webbing questions in it.

    so, angrysparrow, with the cinch buckles system, can i order the straps with only one end looped, or do i need to cut the loop off one end and sew it to avoid it getting fringy?

    I ordered a 30 foot strap from Strapworks. They sewed loops on both ends for a minimal fee. I cut it in half, giving me 2 - 15 foot lengths on each side to use with the cinch buckles.

    I buy this in the 24' length with a 2" loop and cut it in half leaving me with a loop on each end. I then melt the cut end with a lighter to keep it from fraying.

    I also took the cinch buckle and used a very short piece of spyderwire to attach it to a carabiner. I use this as an adapter between the straps and any hammock I use.

    One support system to try various hammocks, keeps it simple for me.

    Yes, you can buy one simple sling with loops on each end and cut it in half...

    I like to have loops on both ends of each length. It adds almost no weight and gives a backup if something were to happen to the stitching on one of the loops.

    one more thing:

    the site you gave for cinch buckles... there is a minimum of 5 to order which comes to $15 plus tax.

    I have searched the internet and cant find anywhere else that sells 1" metal cinch buckles! Is there another site that sells these w/o a minimum?
    Or can i pick them up at a local hardware store or Lowes or Home Depot?

    thanks again.

    Myself and others have searched for identical buckles with no luck. Go with the proven cinch buckles. I love em.
