    Ring help.....

    ok.....Maybe not enough coffee....maybe just not too bright

    I am trying to attach rings to my hammock this morning....and I can get one side like I want it.....but cannot for the life of me get the other side....it keeps getting in the way of my continuous loop on the end of my hammock!!!!!!!


    trying to get it where each "attachment point" should be on it's own.....the hammock....the ridge line...and the whoopie sling

    please see attached pic.....

    it is possible???????

    It should be possibe with all but one end of the RL. If you have an adjustable RL made from UCR you could do the bury for the UCR after you larks head each end to the ring
    Good luck,

    Universal Constrictor Rope

    Or rather, using single braid dyneema-type rope as a constrictor except not of itself as in a whoopie sling but of any other rope that is fed through and out of it, hence the "universal" part of the moniker.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Even with a whoopie RL you could undo the bury, put the line thru the ring and then redo the bury.
    Good luck,

    If the tail of the whoopie is back spliced you may have to cut that off to get it thru the bury. Splicing is remarkably fun and handy, you'll be glad you learned.
    Good luck,
