that is a pretty good web site, but don't use a clove hitch.....It's hard to get out. I use a muntner hitch and its good. Just make sure you hold it tight (the end you would hold if you were to belay) as you tighten it or it will slide.

Check this site:
http://www.slackline.com/

It is first class.



Or you can do like I do:

Tie a loop in the end of your webbing with an overhand, and use this loop to girth hitch it around a tree or other suitable anchor (must be strong as hell). Clove hitch in two biners, with gates opposed and bottom of biners facing the second tree (or other strong as hell anchor), approximately 4 feet from tree with webbing pulled tight. Go around tree, and clip one biner, then go back around tree in opposite direction, clip 2nd biner. (Note-Make sure that the two wraps of webbing are not on top of each other.)

By pulling on the end that comes from the 2nd biner you get a 3:1 advantage. A 2nd pesron to pull webbing coming from the first biner will help tremendously, as there will be friction from the tree, but it is not necessary. Pull tight as hell, and finish with a mule knot on the webbing at the 2nd biner.


If you are using new webbing, there will be plenty of stretch, so you will need to retighten till the stretch is gone, so you may even need to readjust the location of the biners to accomidate this. If you want it super tight, and plan on leaving it up... One you get all the stretch out, and really tight, get it soaking wet, then retighten. When it dries it will be like piano wire. The slackline in my backyard is put up this way, and has only 1' of drop in 30' of line.


This may sound dificult, but it's really pretty easy, once you get it down... I can put up a line in a park bewteen two tree in less than two minutes, by myself.
