    HH continuous loop / whoopie hook video?

    I ordered whoopie hooks, slings and continuous loops for both of our Hennessy Hammocks a couple of days ago. I'm excited about installing the new suspension and cannot find any videos that show how to install the continuos loops here or on YouTube but I'm sure the videos exist. Do any of you know where I can find one?

    I've seen several that show whoopie sling installations on a HH so I have the general idea…

    Thanks in advance!

    I just did the same thing... and couldn't find the video either. I just used the whoopie installation video as a guideline and made the continuous loops work. I really don't think there is just one way to do this as long as you're getting at least two wraps on the gathered end, running the continuous loop through the ridge line loop, and make sure you're running the continuous loop through itself at the end. You can pull on the final assembly and make sure you're getting an even "anchor" at the hammock end without twisting.

    I was a bit surprised how short the loop "pig tail" is coming off the end of the hammock; mine only protrudes a few inches beyone the black "slip cover" that covers the wrapped end.

    I don't think one exists. However Hawg is right, just follow the whoopie instructions

    Sounds like you need to video your installation and post it! You can do it

    There are a great deal of youtube vieos for this or at least connecting whoopies. Just attach the continuous loops like the fixed eye in of the whoopies. That's what I did and then used a larkshead to connect the whoopie to the continuous loop. For tight trees you can use a biner to connect the opposite end of the whoopie back to the continuous loop. Hope this helps.



    For a pictorial & written explanation try this. Again just connect the continuous loops like the whoopie and you'll be fine.

    Good luck, it's pretty easy, even I could do it!

    HH continuous loop / whoopie hook video?

    Argh!

    Ok I got my loops and whoopies and I managed to do this to my continuous loop. Did I mess up my loop? I didn't cut anything, I just got it caught and managed to pull this loop out of the amsteel.

    Any thoughts?

    Probably not. When you hang on it, It may suck back in. If not, it is still under warrantee
