    You can use a stick. Just in addition to making sure the whoopie is on the knot, not the toggle (with whatever accent that is in the video), make sure it's not rotted wood that will disintegrate as soon as there is pressure and wight put on it. damhik...

    I'll use a stick, or an extra tarp stake, whatever I'm in the mood for. What I don't do is try to keep up with something extra.

    I could be wrong but that must be a nightmare to get that toggle off that webbing with those teeth on that toggle. I always thought you want a smooth surface on the toggle to allow for easy removal of toggle..

    Doesn't look overly aggressive. It probably comes out fine but you are right....smooth finish is ideal.

    I've just become a Dutch Buckle fan and convert. I think it has obsoleted the Marlin Spike and toggle in my suspension setup now.

    Thanks Pizza, that's reassuring. It does make me 'feel' safer. One more thing.....my whoopee slings seem to be a bit frayed and where the tail is seems to be 'whitening'. They're new but do you think they're weaker now...I've attached a picture to show ...

    I can't see the pics but it is normal for them to pull apart a bit at the end of the bury. As long as it doesn't spread too far. I've been using the same set of Whoopies on one of my hammocks for 2 or three years with no problems.

    I use gun shells, and they work just fine.
