    I guess my idea just isn't sexy enough for knot nuts!

    What a great video! I watched it from start to finish. It's definitely the first time I've seen anyone hang the WS AND the SRL BEFORE the hammock

They are now on the ridge line ends, which makes it nice as you can use a larger loop and just squeeze it down with the slider. Just remember to not tie the knot to tight as you want it slide semi easily. It really helps make the MSH very safe and lets you fasten the whoopie on securely but easily removable.

    I will definitely be grabbing some spare 550 cord to practice this. It does look very easy. I imagine I'll be doing this very soon, probably after I get my SRL

    Oh that is just brilliantly simple. I like it!

    Brainstorming here... do they make cordlocks big enough for amsteel? If so, unless I'm missing something you could just put one over the end of the whoopie, and snug it up against the msh.

    Personally I use carabiners instead of toggles; might be a little heavier than a toggle, but IMO they're much more versatile/useful and I feel more secure with them!

    I was just at Walmart today looking (unsuccessfully) for snap type grommets and saw a few cord locks. They looked large enough to me.

    So my original idea was that complicated that everyone is making whipping knots and buying cord locks? It seemed so simple and cheap to me. Oh well.

    I use prussic knots on my whoopies and just slide it up the line to the marlin spike knot. Seems to work alright.

    If there's more than one way to skin a cat, people here will discover all of them and document each thoroughly.

    Ayup. I discovered it will clip to my belt loop until I am ready for whatever stuff is clipped to it.
