Tie it with a bowline knot get some caribiners from some where like Decathlon, they dont have to be 3 way locking , screw gates will do.Any recommendation for shape/type of carabiners? I assume I need to slot it through the end of the hammock where the tape currently loops through? What's the best way to attach the tape to the carabiner?
Thanks Mick..Have a look here for tips on using a karabiner:

Hope that helps.
Just thinking about carabiners generally - do you lose some of the stability you get from having 2 points of contact with the tree, albeit very close together points?
Karibiners are nice, but a costly luxury IMO, personally I've plumped for these:
Maillon Rapide 6mm Standard
From Cave & Crag...£1.50 each rather than £6-8.00 a pop! Higher rating weight wise, and you can undo them if you need to.
Or maybe I'm just a tight bum?
