    As I was thinking whoopee slings were so easy any idiot could make them...

    I managed to splice the cord around the arm of my chair. Only noticed it after back splicing the end of the whoopee sling. Guess I'm not just any idiot.

    It's so easy to do something like that and not even know!! I'll pay extra close attention when I make my next ones.

    I was able to fix it with a wrench. The arm was bolted to the back.

    I must admit that's the first time we've seen that posted! I think someone else spliced theirs with a knot tied in the loop though.

    It would have been fairly easy to simply pull the splice back through and do again.

    Glad I could be the first at something, you take what you can get. I had already spliced the tail end back into the line. I suppose that could be undone but not as easy as taking the chair apart.
