    Ring Buckle Setup

    Hey y'all! So I took y'alls advice and ordered a few things from strapworks, which came in 3 days! The cord I ordered, 6mm is quite a bit thicker than anticipated so I could only get two turns inside the rings, but it still seems to grab quite a bit under load. Won't be able to test it out for a while but I'm excited, thanks for everyone's help, I've put up a few pics for input. Thanks in advance!

    Great! Hope it works out. Don't forget the crash pad underneath your hammock the first few times you try it . . . just in case things end up needing tweaked! Speaking from experience.

    Yeah I was planning on testing it out a good 4-6 inches up the first time or two. The hammock is actually an early birthday present I'm trying to coax the parents into giving up early, until then I'm left here dreaming about the good times to come.

    Any update on your rings?
