I want to keep the original Hennessy line on my hammock but want to try something else besides the figure 8 for hanging it. I seem to remember someone posting a picture of using tree huggers with rings in one of the hugger end loops. Then they ran line of Hennessy hammock through rings as the suspension.
Can someone point me to that picture? I've attached pictures of what I did.
I've made huggers with rings but my Hennessy line slips on the rings when I put weight on my hammock. Want to see someone else's pictures to see how they make the lashing through the 2 rings.
I thread the line through the rings but without 2 half hitches to finish it out, it slips. When I put my full weight on hammock the half hitches get really tight and it's hard to readjust which is why I want the rings in the first place.
If I can't do better, I might as well stick with figure 8 with regular tree huggers.
Also with the way I am threading the line through the rings right now it seems like there is A LOT of pressure on the one spot where the rings clamped down on the line. Doesn't that do damage to the line in that spot? Or am I just being paranoid? Will take help and suggestions. Thanks!
