    I've added Whoopie slings.

    I threaded the braid through the channel before making them.

    Ive basically got big adjustable loops, so that I can open the hammock out flat if I go to ground. The sling is attached to the loops on my tree slings with loop shackles/nacrabiners, it works fine.

    I installed whoopie slings on my DD Frontline.
    No problems at all.

    I have a DD Travel Hammock/Bivi it has a channel with webbing at each end. What I did was:

    1. Tie a figure 8 with a bite at one end of the webbing that gathers the hammock end.
    2. Pull webbing tight and tie another figure 8 with a bite, gather up excess webbing.
    3. Use a "Dutch Biner" to connect the two bites and the dead eye of the whoopie sling.
    4. Connect adjustable loop to your tree hugger with toggle or biner.
    5. Repeat steps 1-4 for other end.
    6. Adjust hang of hammock for your comfort.

    Quick, easy and no excessive wear anywhere.
