I was playing with this a while back and used clove hitches to attach
the suspension lines to the sticks (I call them struts when I use them
in this manner). With the polypropylene rope I'm using it worked well
and released easily. You can form a clove hitch in a line with just a
couple of loops slid over each other, in the right manner or course...
you don't really have to tie anything so it works well for this
