I bought a hammock at a yard sale. It is actually a yoga hammock and comes will all sorts of extras but was missing the tree straps which I discovered when I got it home. I have been looking into buying straps, the price varies but someone mentioned I can make my own with materials I have. I have been researching. Some say you can use ratchet straps; I have lots of these. One video said to use paracord but then allegedly the rope hurts the tree plus some complained it stretched too much. Has anyone made their own hammock straps? I want them light and easy. I can buy them but I prefer DIY in-case I ever lose them while hiking.
