    Simply done, I just followed the video directions on the woopsling's web page for GTUL. Seems to work great.

    Basicly that is how you install a continuous loop weave one end in to the channel and clip it to the other end. I would not attach a biner directly to the hammock because
    1. its a pain
    2. It could do some wear and tear to the biner or the hammock
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.

    Don't know why one would pass the fixed loop end of a whoopie sling through the hammock end channel twice. ???

    Thanks for the help!
    Yes except I don't use biners. Once you feed the loop through the channel you pass one end of the loop through the other end of the loop creating a girth hitch. You can then girth hitch the fixed eye of your sling to the loop or use a biner or to save weight over a biner, use a whoopie hook.

    I have the same question... is it necessary to feed the fixed end of the whoopie sling through the channel twice? I can see where it would reduce play in the line when there's no load, but just curious if it's necessary or what advantage it has?
