Hammock Camping Suspension Webbing (water & clove hitch knots)

Quick video compare against the ENO slap strap and how to use regular webbing, a steel ring and 2 knots (water knot & clove hitch) to get the same result when trying to hang your hammock.

 

The Clove Hitch

The clove hitch, is considered an important knot to know, used a lot in scouting. A clove hitch is two successive half-hitches around an object such as a tree, post or other piece fo rope. In this example, we used this knot to tie around a steel ring.

The Water Knot

The water knot is used to join to pieces of webbing together, or in this example to create a loop so that we can clip our hammock to or to wrap around a tree.
