    Looks like two overhand knots around each other. Kind of like the old string bracelets. They would slip over each other.

    Cool. Thanks guys. Oh and here is a better pic of it. I must say that i am replacing it because of some fraying, but the fraying is my fault not a manufaturing problem. It is on a borrowed hammock (borrowed from XtremeKatfishin) and i want to return it in like new shape.
