Two 10’ straps of 1/2″ MULETAPE®. Oh, how we love MULETAPE®. So, much so that we don’t even mind that you can’t get it in any color but white. We knew it had to be a part of our QuickSilver Hammock System no matter what. This 1250 lb. test material is made of lubricated low stretch polyester. The MULETAPE® joins to the QuickSilver Hammock loops with a quick, simple and secure Becket Hitch knot. This knot is a cinch to tie, allows fine adjustments to be made with ease and tears down with just a tug. We’ve tested this knot in wet, cold and hot conditions. It holds strong and does not slip. And no hardware means zero weight added and fewer opportunities for hardware failure leaving you on the ground in the middle of the night.
A word about proper usage: We recommend using tree straps (or, tree huggers) that are, at minimum, 1 inch wide. This is good practice for protecting the trees we hang from. Furthermore, it should be noted that MuleTape has a loose weave and it will snag on tree bark. For these reasons, we do not recommend it for use without tree straps.

A word about hammock safety
It is of utmost importance to inspect your gear every time you use it. Exposure to elements, sharp objects, tree branches, etc. can cause even the most quality materials and construction to wear. Please understand that you are hanging above ground and equipment failure can happen. Inspect your suspension and hammock each time you use it to make sure all components are uncompromised. Also, inspect your hammock site and make sure you are not hanging over sharp objects or rocks, or under dead tree limbs or other overhead unsecured debris that could fall on you. Also check to make sure that any tree, rock, pole, structure, etc. that you choose as an anchor point is steadfastly secured into the ground and will not fall over when weight is applied.
In the interest of maintaining the safety of our wilderness areas, we offer 1″ polyester tree straps to be used with our Muletape suspension straps. We sell them separately because we realize some may own a set of tree straps. But we highly recommend that everyone utilizes tree straps that are 1″ in width or greater to protect the trees. The Muletape attaches quickly to the Tree Straps with a simple larks head knot.
