    Black bird woopie sling Question

    So I have a double layer 1.1 black bird with tree straps and line suspension. So I just bought some woopie slings from Oppie and was wondering the best way to attach it to my hammock. I was planning to cut the line suspension off of my hammock with about 6 inches still attached to the hammock so I can tie a Boleyn (not sure if I spelled that correct) around the back braided loop on the sling.Then I was going to use a lightweight beener on the adjustable side of the sling to attach the sling to the triangular buckle on the tree straps.I can't see a way not to use a beener. I also have dutch clips but I don't see how they will help me. I thought about just tying the adjustable side of the sling to the triangular buckle by inserting a short loop through the triangle then putting the rest of the sling through the loop I just made but that seems like it would get tight when I put my weight in the hammock and would take away a lot of the convenience of this simple system.Thanks and I 'm sure this has been talked about at length but I couldn't read through 55 pages of hard core woopie action.

    There is a YouTube video of how to attach the Whoopies to the BB. you don't need to use a carabiner. The Dutch clips are used on tree buggers and the Whoopie goes onto a Marlin Spike Hitch on the tree bugger.
