Another member had a thread complaining about the Whoopiesling loop popping off his MSH as he got on and off the hammock, and it left him on the ground. A familiar issue to us all. I had an idea to throw out to go with all of the other good ideas folks have had to remedy this problem. I don't know if this has been done before, so feel free to let me know I am reinventing the wheel. This just came to me yesterday and I haven't had a chance to try it while hanging.
I took some 1/8 shock cord I had lying around and tied it into a approx. 1.5" diameter loop, then threaded my tree strap through it so that it would come down from above the MSH. (I wish I had some lighter shock cord, but that's what I had.) Once the Whoopie loop was set on the knot, I took the shock loop, twisted it twice tightly against the strap just above the Whoopie loop, then brought the rest of the shock loop down, over the toggle, and to the bottom side of the MSH knot just below the toggle. One twist will work as well, I just liked how tight two twists were. This keeps the Whoopie loop in place, it slides easily for adjustment, and doesn't pop off.
Has anyone tried this? Is this a dumb idea and I am missing a glaring problem?It fits my favorite criteria of cheap and simple.
