No Knot Tarp guylines

This is a new twist on a product already out there. The Tensioning feature of the Jacks R Better STL lines, but without the need for knots or hardware.

The No Knot Tarp/Tent Guyline.... Just larks head one end to your tarp or tent, and the other loop goes around your stake, rock, tree branch etc.

There are more pictures and a video you can view at

I am also working on a tarp ridgeline. This will include a length of rope, 20-25 feet long with loops sliced in either end. Attached to the line will be 2 prusik knots. These will be the attachment points for your tarp ridge line. This allows you to string up the ridge line and then hang your tarp either over the ridgeline or under it, center it over your hammock and then pull the prusik knots tight... Im hoping to have this added as a stand alone option and as a kit along with the No Knot Guylines.

OK... So I thought I would give the slings a good weight test. So I loaded my 265# self in my ENO Double Nest. Then I had my 65# son hop in, and lastly my 40# daughter.

The proof, and the results...



That pole is 1.5" well pipe in schedule 40. Everything held fine.

Howdy all!! I discovered sleeping in a hammock early this year. I joined which is where I learned about the "whoopie sling" for hammock suspension. Ive since started making and selling this suspension method at reasonable prices.

I use Amsteel in 7/64 and right now I have blue, red, yellow, gray and black. This rope had a 1600# rated breaking strength. My stock length is 6', which gives you an adjustment range of 20" to 6' per sling. Slings are sold in pairs. There is a dead eye on one end which is the hammock and, and the adjustable loop is the other end and this get attached to your tree, stand, pole what-have you.

Current prices are:

6' slings are $17.55
8' slings are $20.25
10' slings are $22.95

These are for any color and shipped USPS.
