I the do 2-3 wraps around the rope pointing towards the hammock, pull it tight up against the carabiners, and do one double-slip through the middle of the carabiner. Stupid easy, never slips and takes around 2-4 seconds to do.

    I'm guessing a picture or few would help?

    FF: I'm sorry that I never got back with you on buying the second set of cinch buckles. I just kept putting it off to the point that I look like a real-deal lamer right now. I'm sure that you got rid of them easy, but that still doesn't make it right. I do seriously apologize.
    No problem. I used them on my bridge hammock.

    I'm a relative newbie (only a couple of years) in my hammock, so I'm still using the tree hugger system that came with my Hennessy.

    I'll experiment more this year - the ring buckle system looks like it's easy to set up and adjust, but the Speer 4-wrap looks like the ultimate in simplicity, at least once I figure it out.

    Just got a Speer winter tarp for xmas, so it's time to play in the backyard.

    I just tweaked my Claytor to a buckle system, not sure yet if Im going to stick with it but so far it seems reliable. Using a JrB Tri-Glide attached permanently to the end of a stock tree hugger (cut, then re-sewn with the tri glide), then I removed the ol' green rope from the Claytor and used polyprop webbing in its place. now I can wrap the tree hugger, slip the hammock end-webbing thru the tri-glide and that's it. also I added a structural ridgeline to the whole deal, so I dont have to fidgit with the webbing too much. best thing is, the tree huggers that collect sap dont touch the hammock because they go in a seperate stuff sack.

    I'm now using the Carabiner Hitch technique described by TeeDee in this post.

    It's working great! Much less weight and volume, easy to adjust, holds rock-steady.
