hope you all found the ring system working well!!!
these are my instructions....
for those people who are in the uk and are finding it hard to find ring buckles, i have had good sucess with a caribina and a munter hitch has the same effect as being able to adjust but heeds a slippery hitch at the end and an overhand knoct to lock it of.
Great first post, Simon! Welcome to the forum...

IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
I tried searching the thread but could not find anything about using this customization with the HH backpacker hyperlight. I read on mcsparens Youtube video that the ropes on the Hyperlight were too thin for this to work.
Is this the case? Do I need to remove the rope and substitute it for paracord or something else?
I am upgrading my rings on my ring buckles. Thicker or thinner, what gives best performance. (donuts vs. onionrings)

i'm still new to hammock.
that suspension system interrest me a lot for it simplicity.
i'm still in the "planning stage" of my setup, buying parts.
for those using the suspension as the first post shows it, how long of webing straps do you use at each end of you hammock?
I would use a single strap to go around the tree and then to the end of the hammock where the rings would be attach. how long should i get at each end?
thanks in advance.
