How do you tie a hammock rope?
Last Updated: 20th February, 2020
- Make a bend (bight) with the rope by bending the rope on itself.
- Bend the loop over itself at 90 degrees.
- Pull the loop behind the underlying rope.
- Pull the loop through the newly-made hole and tighten.
- Now you should have a knot with a loop on one end.

Similarly, you may ask, what kind of rope do you use for a hammock?
Nylon rope stretches like a rubber band when under a strain--up to 40 percent of its length, depending on the weight imposed. This means that, even if your hammock is pulled tight, it will sag as your weight stretches the rope. Natural fibers, on the other hand, swell when wet.
Also, can paracord hold a hammock? So enough stalling, can you use paracord to hold up your hammock? No, not only is paracord a bad choice for holding up your hammock, it is also not recommended for any other part of your hammock set up and there are a few reasons why.
