    I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    I'm no expert, but I'll use my logic here. The force exerted on the straps is reduced by friction as you go around the tree. If you wrap enough times, the friction alone will hold the weight. Even with one wrap, the amount of force put on that connection point, whether it be a carabiner, dutch clip, or nacrabiner, will be less than the original force coming from the strap. (Unless you find a magical frictionless physics book tree...) Assuming all the parts of the system are set up correctly, it should be just fine. Some may pipe up about "fabric on fabric," but that isn't a concern in a situation like this. Happy hanging!

    Should be fine as long as its a good knot. Can't tell because I'm on my phone.

    In my not so expert opinion, if it's holding, it's holding. Just remember rule 1 of hammocking, don't hang higher than you're willing to fall.

    I have been using on on my hammock suspension....Dutch Clip on one strap...nacrabiner on the other. Been watching then.
    So far it has held like a champ.

    i would like to add that webbing and rope interface is subject to friction and increased wear at the contact point.( more so than either in contact with the metal of biner.) probably not a big problem but worth considereing
