Peapod attachment mod
I have always hated tying the knots to attach my pods. Difficult to get the tension just right. So, I did the following...
Grosgrain loops attached along the seam on each side on both ends in the unstuffed area. One side on each end has a cord tensioner. I used shock cord for my cord.
It can then be clipped to a mini biner with prussick.
Or just hung over the knot on a gathered end hammock.
The adjustment is so easy now and attachment takes only seconds without having to tie the knots. The cinch cords are easily tied to seal or vent the ends as needed.
One added bonus for me is it seems like the top drapes into the hammock more since the tension for attachment is on the sides.
You Sire Kangaru need to join us at the Roan High hang in February!
and I need to mod my SuperPod yet again :)
Nicely done................I ran shock cord thru the channel along with the shoelace but I just might have to redo it...............TY
Great idea, now I need to mod my peapod. :thumbup:
I did the same but this is better! :thumbup1:

I started out just to get easier attachment to the hammock then found that having the closure and suspension seperate made a big difference in how the pods perform. Really easy to do too...even if sewing by hand.
Pod People! That's funny!!

Im a pod person now
I received my antique synthetic filled Peapod today and immediately did the mod. One thing i did extra so i could take it on and off easier was put a double mitten hook between the two cord locks on the clinch ends. this keeps the velcro from opening up on the ends. Works really well.
