MicroRope

Product Review (submitted on March 21, 2011):

I bought the microrope to use with a hammock my wife bought me a few years ago. I hadn't set it up because I didn't want to damage any trees. The microrope was very easy to use. Wrap it around the tree; slip the metal bar through the factory made loop and hook your hammock to it. Adjusting the length of the rope is like lacing a shoe. It's a bit slow, but it works very well.
I had an "uh-oh" moment when I looked at my hammock. The graphic on the back of the package shows the "Hammock Eye" being made of rope or something. Mine was a metal S-hook. It still worked great. I kept the microrope's metal bar on the top of the S-hook and had no problems.
After taking the hammock down to keep the kids from playing on it, I folded the microrope up and stored it in the same bag as the hammock. Too easy!
The hammock held close to 280 lbs with no problem.
