    WB web suspension on a HH??? HELP!!

    I am trying to mod a Henessey hammock from the stock suspension to a WB web suspension for a friend. My question is has anyone done this???

    I was thinking that I will have to put a bigger continuous loop on the buckles and then thread it like it was a whoopie sling....thoughts......

    I did this to my Hennessey, though it wasn't the wb suspension. I talked to Dutch and told him my plans. He sent me the buckle suspension on chain link, though you have to specify it's for a hennessey because the chainlink has to be a little longer. But yes I did the same thing as switching it to whoopies. I just took the chainlink and followed the same instructions to tie it through the two stock holes. Very easy to do.

    I would clove hitch a descender ring to the line from the hennessy and then connect any suspension I thought I might like on to the ring. Puts in a drip loop and does not mess with the hennessy internally. Cut back or swap out the Hennessy rope once you are settled with changes if you have to.
    YMMV

    Add a continuous loop to the buckle, install the loop like a whoopie sling, threaded the strap to the buckle.

    Great info and thank you so much for the pictures. I know we say it didn't happen if there are not pictures, but so often I don't understand unless there are pictures.

    I love this forum!

    Thanks again.

    I did it just how your saying.. hardest part is getting the loop just the right length. After that it was easy.

    I am glad to know first hand that it works. Can you give me a measurement for the right length?
