    Question about "All in One Whoopie Sling System"...

    Does this "all in one" system that I just purchased from whoopieslings.com actually have the ability to wrap around both trees? I know I will need to convert for my ENO once I get them, but I'm unsure if I got everything I needed to hang in two weeks... I'm ditching the slap straps bc of the stretching, obviously.

    Help!

    Based on this description it appears that you need a device like a carabiner or "Dutch clip" to attach to the loop in the free end of the webbing.

    Then to secure the webbing to the tree, you bring the free end all the way around the tree to meet the standing end of the webbing, and then clip the carabiner or Dutch clip to the standing end to complete the loop.

    The carabiners need to be climbing rated. whoopieslings.com sells the Camp Nano 23, as do a number of on-line stores, google will show you. You can get Dutch clips from JRB.

    I purchased some all-in-one whoopies (don't remember which cottage store) that included the whoopies, straps and toggles. It was all that was needed.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    If you got the standard 6' straps & 6' whoopies with your All-In-One then they should be sufficient for most trees. (upto about 2' in diameter) All you need are 'biners or dutch clips as mentioned above.

    You can simply remove the heavy rope from the Eno's end channel and lark's head the fixed loop through it. Worked fine for me before I got my WBBB.

    I have All-In-One whoopie slings from whoopieslings.com on all my hammocks now. IMHO, it's the only way to hang.

    +1 on the lark's head. I do that as well.

    Toggles should work fine as well to connect the whoopies to the straps.
    It'll be alright Friday!

    Folks, this is likely to confuse the OP who doesn't really know what he's got or what he needs. Yes, most whoopie sling systems need toggles. But the specific "All-In-One" system being referenced does not. The fixed eye of the whoopie sling is permanently attached to a loop in the tree webbing. I quote
    from the site (where there also is a picture of the fixed eye through the webbing loop)
    The other end of the sling is attached to a loop in the webbing, no more possibility of taking your hammock down and forgetting your straps
    No toggles needed.

    Hey hikerman, the All In One system will have everything you need except for a pair of carabiners or Dutch Clips to connect the looped end of the tree hugger back on to the body of the webbing after wrapping it around the tree.

    Thanks Grizz for helping out on this. Our house took a direct hit of lightening and it took out our DSL service amongst many other things I'm playing catch up.

    Just to clarify.... there are several "All in one whoopie systems" offered by different vendors...

    The "All in one whoopie system" actually call the "Hammock Suspension System Complete" offered by Jacks 'R' better includes Dutch Clips and Dutch Biners.
