    HH and whoopie slings?

    What is the best way to put whoopie slings on a Henessy hammock?

    The only thing I can think of is to tie a loop in the hanging cord next to the hammock, and go from there. Is there a better way?

    Thanks but it's not my video. I just got a credit for the method which I once posted via still pics.

    I wanted to be able to detach my whoopies so I tied a 12" continuous utility loop (7/64" Amsteel) to the hammock in basically the same way you would attach the fixed loop of thw whoopie. Combined with Dutch biners, I can now attach and detach the whoopies to move them to another hammock, reverse them, etc. The only thing I might do differently next time is use a 14" loop so it protrudes more from the black sheath.
