    What are you tying the webbing to, the tree or the hammock?

    you got the adjustable webbing suspension i think. you'll have to take the webbing out of the buckles, wrap around the tree and thread one end through the looped end. now webbing is attached to the tree. thread back through the buckles, adjust, and tie a slipped half hitch tightly behind them.

    if you get 2 biners, you can put them in those webbing loops, and you just clip the webbing around the tree, rather than taking the webbing out of the buckles, and then threading them back on. this is what most folks do.

    google Camp nano wire gate carabiners. Sometimes you can find them at REI. Or, get a couple of TrekLight carabiners. Those work, too. The TrekLight site is listed in the manufacturers section.

    any climbing shop has them, rei would too, you can order some lighter-but less strong- but still strong enough ones form trecklight's website (look in the manufactuer's forums)
