- Although sewing a short length of strap onto my hanging straps as a
water stop worked very well for its intended purpose, the seam some
how severely weakened the straps. I am now recovering from a 3' drop
I just made as one of my straps failed right at the water stop seam.
Just a heads up for Tim and anyone else trying this method. I have
used the hammock with the water stops in place several times with no
problems. I set it up this time to take pictures but didn't get that
far. Maybe I'll go back to a rope and tree hugger setup. It just
seems funny that the straps don't show any signs of stress where I
sewed the loops in the ends. Anyone have any ideas on why this
