    Your solution looks like a fine one for those who still use the stock HH spectra. How heavy is that cleat?

    Personally, I don't have a problem keeping the webbing lined up through the rings, even though I do take 3 seconds to tie a simple overhand slipknot with the loose end (just for insurance). YMMV. I don't like having to keep up with tree hugger seperately either.

    Or having to wrap it around the tree while holding the spectra on the end of the hammock and then having to thread the spectra through the tree hugger.

    It's so much quicker to just toss the webbing with biner around the tree, clip biner back to webbing, pull tight through rings and add slippery half hitch to webbing at rings.

    Not to mention the stretch factor with spectra. I enjoy not having to retighten after hanging for a while.

    I like that cleat idea a lot - quick and simple - do you know how much each weighs? and what size line it is rated for? Or do they come in different sizes?
