    Just has to be big enough to larks head around the whipped end of your hammock and fit the woopie hook through. However I had a continuous look slip off the whipped end of my hammock before so what I do now is us a piece of dynaglide with two locked brummels on each end to whip my hammock. And then attach woopie Dutch hook to the loop. That way nothing can slip off the end of the hammock. Hope that makes sense. I also tie up the extra woopie line right above the woopie hook as extra measures. I use the same system as Cranky Bear and find it to be fast easy and best of all it uses Dutch Bling.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Got any pictures? I think I understand what you are saying, but a picture is worth a thousand words.
