    Question Help changing to All-In-One suspension on my Claytor

    I was hoping that someone smarter than me could give me a few hints as to how I go about changing the suspension on my Claytor Jungle Hammock to the All-In-One suspension set from www.whoopieslings.com.

    I could just go by trial and error, but I'd rather not end on the ground or even worse end up tearing my hammock

    Do I just ignore the sewn-in channel and attach the suspension like on a "real" gathered end hammock (like shown in Opies video) and do I then need to add a shorter piece of rope with a loop in the sewn-in channel and take the All-In-One through that loop?

    Thanks in advance

    I think the end channel on you Claytor is like the end channel on my ENO DN or CJH NX-200. I replaced the suspension on these hammocks with the CB/Chain Link from Paul at AHE. All I did was remove the stock suspension from the channel and then replaced it with the chain link and a simple larks head. I hope this helps, they both numerous hangs on them and I have seen no signs of failure int he fabric.........but I do check!!!!!!!

    I don't really know the all-in-one, but I put whoopies on my DD... simply tied the old suspension that lived in the sewn channel to the spliced loop, pulled it through, and pulled the whole works through the spliced loop. So far so good.

    I have my Claytor setup like the one in opies video. I find it more comfortable this way.
    Either way will work.

    There's a chain link at one end of the suspension for connecting the hammock. So I'll just pull it through the channel and then back through the chain link loop, tighten and I'm good to go? No knots or tying of any kind?
