    Is it possible to put my warbonnet buckles and strap on a hennessey?

    I picked up a set of whoopies for my warbonnet BB. And wanted to put the stock WBBB buckles and webbing on my sons hennessey
    Is it possible? I've searched but can't find a way and I don't want my sons hammock to fall if I thread it wrong.

    There are directions for replacing the rope on a Hennessy with a continuous loop that can be attached to a whoopee. Assuming the hole is large enough you can also run the rope through the buckle and tie if off close to the hammock thus leaving the internals alone. If the hammock is in warranty I would do the latter. I would do it anyway as I don't see messing with the internals is worth 2 oz or so. ;-)

    Yes, it's possible. A co-worker did just that to his HH. He got the webbing / buckle / amsteel loop from Arrowhead Equipment and hasn't had any problems with the setup.

    Here's a link to Just Jeff's instructions as mentioned above.

    I'm Hoping to do this without spending $$

    Since the Amstel loop that the BB buckles are on look only 8-10 inches and the tutorial on just Jeff's use 40" of cord.
    Could I just use the rope from the HH and attach the buckles to that
    If so what's the best way to tie it on?

    Do you still have the loops that came with the WB Buckles? If so, one possible method is to use a doubel sheet bend.

    I think I did it with a non WB cinch buckle. Wrapped a prussik with the HH Explorer UL rope through the cinch buckle. Worked fine.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
