The Suspension Straps of the Jungle Hammock have a secondary strap used to provide attachment points for the apex of the Jungle Tarp.
The Tarp Attachment Point straps have gated carabiners to attach to the Jungle Tarp. These straps are connected to the Suspension Straps via bungee cords and can be stowed neatly using the ‘Hook Keeper’ loop:
The Tarp Attachment Straps should not be tensioned when the gated carabiner is attached to the Hook Keeper:
Tensioning the Tarp Attachment Strap will place it under load when a sleeper is in the hammock, and may result in damage to the bungee cord.
When the hammock is pitched correctly, the Tarp Attachment Strap will be slightly loose (even though the gated carabiner is attached to the Hook Keeper):
When the Tarp Attachment strap is under tension (with the gated carabiner attached to the Hook Keeper), the main Suspension Strap will be loose:
The above image shows the strap pitched incorrectly: this can result in damage to the bungee cord
