Please do not do this to your tree. I'm an arborist and I work in tree health care- this will strangle the vascular tissue in your tree. Do an image search for strangled tree. This is fairly common abiotic damage with people trying to strap their trees without the proper knowledge.

pretty cool but you'd never see my 270lbs in it !

thanks l8nite, we tested it with our combined weight, 2 times 60kg, which is almost 270lbs.... the cord when plucked sung with the tension, but supported us fine, so i feel you'd be alright on it.
