    Slipping/creep

    Hi guys,

    I have a relatively new set of whoops with Dutch clips and I'm finding that one end tends to creep under load, slowly lowering my WBBB DL 1.7.

    Have people had this issue before? Perhaps I am doing something wrong?

    I weigh ~88kg.

    Cheers
    Tom.

    Did you buy them ready made or make yourself?
    Could be your bury is not long enough!

    cheers

    This can happen if the bury is not milked. Just a thought.

    That's what I first thought, the fixed eye end is attached to the hammock right?

    Bunaka, if they were purchased from us, the bury should be more than adequate to hold well. If the fixed eye is on the hammock end as it should be, then as the others have said milk the bury from the adjustable loop end towards the fixed eye end after adjusting the loop. Some of the colors of line are a little stiffer than others when new but if all that is done, they will not slip. Feel free to email or PM me here if you have additional questions.

    Seems a bit of milking was all it needed. Thanks all.
