Simple Hammock Suspension Options using a Continuous Loop
卑微的连续循环。你已经看到了它们 - 这些天吊床上几乎难以受到难以受到的，特别是简单，收集的吊床，还有一体化的吊床，具有集成的Bug网。在抛弃那个小循环之前，我想描述并展示一些简单的吊床悬架选项，利用这个小型战神。
Loop Tips (or “Why Use The Loop?”)
该rope loop first offers a basic necessity on Brazilian-style hammocks by gathering up the ends, creating the basic hammock pointed oval (marquise) shape we all know and love.
Probably my number one reason for using these loops is to create an attachment point as close to the hammock as possible. In this way, the attachment point is more likely to remain covered by the tarp in the rain, and the attachment can double as a water break or drip line, preventing water from running down the suspension line into the hammock.
Tip 2: The short hang
When circumstances bring you between trees that just barely clear your tarp, you may find your suspension is too long to be useful. In these cases, it’s nice to have a connection point close to your hammock to make hanging your hammock easier.
Tip 3: Quick connect
With the right connection options, such as a Whoopie Hook or Carabiner, a short loop makes quick work of setting up, just “clip” and go. Other hardware options are equally quick to adjust, such as descender rings, cinch buckles, or tri-glide-style devices.
Tip 5: Sap sidestep
A nasty side-effect of hanging a hammock around trees is getting your suspension soaked in sap. With single-line suspension, such as straps that connect directly around the hammock and then wrap around a tree, you’re literally “stuck” with sap with no way to keep it away from the hammock. Using a short continuous loop on the hammock, you can easily disconnect a sappy strap and store it separately, if needed.
Tip 6: Under quilt clip
Having a short loop provides a handy clipping point for under quilts. Clip either around the loop or through it for a secure connection.
Tip 7: Hang a pack
With a short loop on either side of the hammock, you have perfect connection points to add a structural or non-structural ridge line to the hammock. Using 1.75 mm dyneema, you can tie off a ridge line that helps the hammock maintain a consistent sag shape, but also provides a place to clip a gear pocket for storing small items like flash lights, cameras, and phones.
Carabiner (see alsoDutch Biners）
For this “wrapped descender ring” version, see my post onno-knots, lighter descender ring suspension。
“三角形”Cinch Buckles直接组装在连续循环上，但您可以单独添加它们Lark’s Head knot, similar to the other examples shown here.
