I'm shocked we could get 5 pages out of knot or not...
All I know is 'on the knot, not the toggle.'
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
— John Muir
I carry much longer straps then I really need on average. Here in FL I do occasionally hang in an oak hammock (yes that's a term down here) that has trees upwards of 3+ feet in diameter. So, I have 10' straps with a sewn loop in each end. When I don't need the length I just fold the strap in half and larks head it around much smaller trees. Then I still MSH the toggle to the doubled-up strap as I would normally with the single strap (hopefully that makes sense).
I figure by doing this too I kind of spread out the wear and tear on the straps over the full length.
Works for me....HYOH
Sorry had to upload...
And then, there's this, which I'm going to try with webbing, just for grins.
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
