I'm not a legal expert of any kind, but there is a contract implied between consumer and user. This 'law' we have been chatting about is part of limiting the manufacturers legal liability by defining how to use thier product.
This is a blanket warning. First, as a user you cannot sue the company if you get hurt using their product in a manner that they did not design it for. An example may be if you use a lawn insecticide inside your house and your pets get sick. That would be an unauthorized use.
The second example would be for inappropriate use that hazards yourself. Spraying cooking spray into a bag and then huffing to get high also falls into the area of unintended use. This 'law' then can be applied since they cannot list everything that you are not allowed to do to yourself.
Where do I send my .02? :)

Doesn't hurt to have em out east either. I carry extra straps along
with the HH because sometimes the spot you'd really like to use
requires the extra rigging. Normally though it's better to avoid
larger trees because of deadfall risks.
When my brother and I went to Big South Fork a few weeks back, the
only hammock spot I could find down by the river had an 4ft. dia.
windthrown tree near a smaller one. All the other options were
crawling with poison ivy. So I tied the two straps together and
wrapped em around the prostrate tree as many times as I could, tying
off back to the line. The other side had the usual HH strap. It
worked. Without the extra strapping I would have been forced to go
partway up the bluff face to find something useable.
Yea, let's see that car hammock of yours. :-)
