    Question Cinch buckle suspension.

    Hello fellow claytor hammockers, So I have finally gotten around to swapping out the original claytor suspension for a cinch buckle system I acquired through Dutch. So now I'm stuck, I have the cinch buckles but how do I connect the buckles to the actual hammock (the channels). It seems that everyone is using the "continuous loop" made from amsteel, but I don't understand how this works..Is the purpose of the loop to go through channels?? If I purchase an amsteel loop, how can I feed it through the channels if the loop is already closed?? what am I missing?

    Feed the whole loop through the channel and then feed one end through the other to make a larkshead. Hope that helps

    double larkshead on the buckle. Then feed the loop through the channel and pass the buckle through the loop.

    If you didn't get them spliced on a loop you can return them and i will splice them on. If you know how to splice all is good. Let me know if I can help.
