Using tree straps without "eyes" sewn on..
Well, the title says it all. I have some outrageously heavy straps that ratchet, originally made for automotive uses. I have ridded myself of all extra metal on them, except for these S-hooks. To do that, I plan on cutting that part of that they are hooked to.
This would leave straps with no eye holes- so my question is "How can I attach them to the trees"? I don't use eyes to attach to my hammock, I usually hook a carabiner through a marlin spike hitch.
So, back to my question, how to attach to the trees- Could I tie something like a "buck-knot" at that end, and run it around, or is there some other knot?
