      > I did not even think about that, I have 3 sets in the garage that
      have busted tightners. I do cable work, so I use them fasten ladders
      atop the van. So, that will be my plan, tie off the hammock with the
      mule tape, then have the tie downs around the tree. I wil have to work
      with the ties downs and see if it will take a sheetbend. I know there
      are other preffered knots, but thescouts ahve to have that one down pat!

      Thanks Ralph.
