    Talking Braided Cord Triangle Thingie, the WUQII Leash

    Loved the triangle thingie for my underquilt, but I wanted to try to do without hardware. Saw one of the posts on the Amsteel Triangle, and got out the bag o stuff. Please note, my UQ (soon to be posted, the WUQII- Woobie UnderQuilt, Insulation integrated) is not heavy enough to warrant amsteel for suspension, but it was easier to use than mason line, carpal tunnel and all that).

    Difficult part for me was trying to get 3 legs and an attaching loop, and came to this after a couple aborts. Quick geometry of it, eye splice, 11" bury, split legs 5" apart topped with nacrabiners, then stitch buried to secure. Really love that I can leave this attached to the 'mock and not suffer any size/weight impact of any import (to me, not yet graduated to the gram weanie stage).

    Looking for the constructive criticism, already tested in the garage, works great!

    I like the mason line openers. Looks nice.
    An emergency of my own making...is still an emergency.

    Nice and practical. Does it ever get pulled to one side?

    Looks great.

    I made a similar one with 2mm cordage.

    I did have an issue when making it with the "Y" as you have done. It would slip to one side or the other when I moved. One leg of the Y would slip over the ridgeline to the other side (even as far as to where the shock cord would be over the ridgeline on one side and both legs of the Y would be on the same side of the hammock).

    I went with the typical triangle configuration and that remedied the issue.

    YMMV.

    I have seen a little slippage, Im thinking about 2 potential countermeasures. First, as weight is negligible, and I plan on leaving the leash on the hammock, I will either a) mason line tether at the "Y" (loop spliced in), or b), Version 2.0, engineer in a loop at the "Y". B is a challenge, but I spend a lot of time on the road, so I get a lot of time to tie knots in my head while driving.

    I luv this stuff and the forum really turns on a lot of light bulbs for me!

    It looks nice, it's fun to make own solutions to ideas that one has
    I have tried something similar a while ago and it works perfectly
