      The easiest method I've used so far to hang a hammock (have done the carabiner, tree huggers, etc.) is to simply wrap cordage from the hammock around a tree a few times and then tie a bow. Never had it slip on me once.

      Though, I'm looking forward to having a cinch buckle and a single strap (webbing) on either sides of the hammock. My issue has been not having a long enough cord/webbing to go around some of the larger trees that I run into over here. The 15 feet that came with my claytor will do in a pinch for most trees, but it's just not long enough for some of the larger diamter trees.

      All ths talk about Aecenders and having to tie ropes to hang your
      hammock. Has anyone looked at the slap straps from ENO. Like someone
      said one rope less weight simple. You just toss it around the tree and
      slide it through a loop hook in with a biner and Vollia swinging in no
      time

      I'm planning on using cinch buckles and 1" webbing straps on the hammock
      I'm making for my wife. They look like they'd work well, and the folks
      on hammockforums who have used them say you *don't* even need to tie in
      a couple of half-hitches to prevent the line from slipping.

      They're pretty cheap too:

      It occurs to me---why isn't there some kind of
      cam-type adjustor available for hammock hanging?

      Like the ones used on motorcycle tie down straps?

      Some folks here have used a double ring system but secure it with a half
      hitch when the adjustment is correct.
