    Rewhipping ENO?

    I would like to add rings and straps, like the BB, to my ENO Double, wondering, how hard, and what do you have to do to unlash the current ENO set-up. I would rather not cut the line, so I can reuse..... Thanks!

    It's a really simple knot; it can be kind of tough to get loose, but not very. If you want to switch-out to a smaller diameter line that's fine, but you could use the existing line and just attach the rings to that with a simple prussick knot. The ENO 'whipping' is just a cinched bunch using a drawcord channel. Very, very simple mod. I doubt it will take you 15 minutes from beginning to end.

    When I bought the WB blackbird I bought a 2nd suspension system from WBGuy. I attached the small rope that the Tri-Rings are on and wrapped it around the ENO rope… worked great…

    I changed my ENO to rings the way Cannible suggested, prussick knot onto original cord and I am very happy with it. I use strapping when car camping and cord with guarda knot when backpacking

    Another alternative is to leave the ropes as they are but attach the ring buckles to the hammock with a larkshead knot right behind the drawn-up channel. That makes for a very secure attachment but would leave the original suspension untouched in case you ever wanted to use it again, which is not likely in my estimation, but still....
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I like this plan. Would 7/64 Amsteel Blue be strong enough line for this purpose? Larks head to tri-ring buckles, then to original ENO line?

    That is what I used when I redid the suspension on my ENO. I am 6'1" and 190lbs. I love amsteel 7/64 cordage.

    I have the rings prussiced to the amsteel 7/64 and the that is lark's headed to the hammock fabric itself right behind the channel. Nothing would be attached to the original ropes. However... on my HH suspension I have the riing buckles prussiced to the 7/64 and then the 7/64 is prussiced to the original HH ropes. So either set up will work.

    I bought the second suspension set, as well. I went ahead and cut the original line on my ENO, then just ran the line with the buckles through the channel and secured with a larkshead. Keeps the line much shorter, which was a plus for me. The simple larkshead seems to be working well, without putting undue stress on the fabric (as this line has a much smaller diameter than the original). It has held my bulk off the ground, so far.

    Any place I can find a "how to tie" for the prussick knot?
