    How to use whoopie slings ?

    I got my whoopie slings from jacks r better. I can't seem to move them easily up and down the cord? Which part do I hold and which part to I move? I got them for my Grand Trunk Nano 7. Thanks for your advice!

    How to use whoopie slings ?

    Probably the best thing for you to do is keep playing with them until it becomes intuitive. It took me awhile to stop pulling the wrong end, but now I do it in my sleep and I love whoopies.

    The principle thing to remember is that to loosen them, you must accordion the outer line so that it isn't constricting the inner line. You can actually see the outer line scrunching up when done correctly.

    To lengthen the whoopie, hold the sheath at the end toward the tree.

    To shorten the whoopie, hold the sheath at the end toward the hammock.

    Make sense?
