Hammock ⟷ Suspension ropes
Tie your hammock directly to the suspension ropes using the Becket Hitch. This is practical if you use the hammock outdoors and want to set it up and take it down quickly.
The knot tightens under load and therefore cannot be released under load.
Carabiner ⟷ Suspension ropes
For long-term use, e.g. in the home, a carabiner is also recommended to protect the hammock.
You can attach your suspension ropes to a carabiner with the Clove Hitch. This knot also contracts under load and is height-adjustable.

Always test knots!
Before you get into the hammock, you should lean your full weight on the hammock to check whether the knot holds.
