Thread: New hammock rig

  1. #1

    New hammock rig

    Had first overnighter on Exmoor and tried out hanging the hammock from a new rig on the car.
    I re-used a safety belt from a scrapped car - converted the one end into a sewn loop used some protective sleeves for paintwork. It worked fine.

    Yes thanks Rasputin.

    Only thing I have to remember is that the car suspensions sinks a little when I get in, so have to have it tight to begin with.
    I love sleeping in a hammock!

    I know, there is nothing like a night in a hammock, I have slept on rocks 'n' roots a couple of times in the last 5-6 yrs but it wasnt by choice. I could not go back to it now. I quickly made a pair of tree huggers from an old seat belt a couple of years back when I couldnt find my webbing ones I'de made and they worked great. It looks like a good set up you had there. atb Ken Name:  t57034.gif

    Thanks Ken,

    I know what you mean and there is something about waking up under a tarp that makes me feel that bit closer to nature.

    Cheers
