    You loose me when you say it goes from the tree to the hookthingy. normally, there would be a rope going from the hammock to one side of the rings, the webbing the goes from the tree to the other side. when you get in the hammock, the knot on the rope tightens and causes the webbing to tighten up also.

    And no, this is not normal.

    The two baby rings and the webbing were threaded like a belt so it pulled tight. Hubby make a slipknot above the rings and everything holds fine.

    Here's the problem/question:
    If we don't put the slipknot, it slides and will drop me on my butt. Is this normal?

    When I used TUBULAR Webbing with the ring buckles, it slipped,, badly I could NOT get it to stop without tying a knot in it. It also stretched like crazy!! Got flat webbing instead (sadly not long enough ), that stopped the slipping AND the stretch! Do you have the tubular stuff?
    My new wider (2" instead of 1.5") but thinner (???) flat stuff also slipped "a bit", but once it got set up / stretched / broke in / etc. that stopped. It took one night
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    I have flat webbing and it's not stretching at bit, however, I think it is only like 1 inch or maybe 1.5 inch webbing.

    I have the pictures, I need to get them off the camera, I got carried away this weekend and lost track of it all. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll post the pix as soon as I get home from work and settled in!

    I believe our issue to be related to the beiner at the end of the ENO Double rather than a rope tied to them to keep the rings locked together.
