Replacing Whoopie Slings on a Dream Hammock
In this video, I show one method for attaching the ridge line to the end of the suspension. Randy, owner of Dream Hammock, uses an alternative method that helps prevent a tight ridge line from pulling the suspension Lark’s Head looser and possibly lengthening the ridge line slightly if the hammock is hung too flat. In the images he provided, he illustrates how to slide the ridge line over the suspension (a continuous loop or Whoopie Sling) after the loop/sling has been attached to the the hammock. This attachment tightens the Lark’s Head the tighter the ridge line gets.
I should also note that the end channel on a Dream Hammock is sewn together, which prevents using the pipe hack I talk about in the video. Using the pull-through method is preferred on the Dream Hammock.
