463RE: Hammock Camping Re: Methods of securing hammocks to trees
- Feb 6, 2003Tim:
I think the Crazy Creek system deserves consideration too.
The salient feature is that they use a metal buckle to
control the length of a 1-inch wide strap. If you could find
similar buckles, you could clip onto the webbing, then use
the webbing to adjust the tension.
You wouldn't have the 2:1 mechanical advantage of the
trucker's hitch, though.
I'm must thinking you may experience as much difficulty with
the trucker's hitch as with the HH knot.
