Ever wake up in the middle of the night and realize you're cold because your under quilt is sagging? Do you go out into the cold and adjust the UQ suspension or just ride it out? What if you could adjust it right from the hammock?
Here's a simple mod for those using the classic Jacks-r-Better type suspension, with bungees at each end of the hammock. To adjust that type of suspension you have to unclip it from the UQ first.
What I did was attach a line lock, using a small sewn loop of grosgrain ribbon, to one of the existing UQ corner tabs.
The other corner I left as is.
Removed the crimp and mini biner from one end of the standard JRB suspension bungees and fed the plain end of the bungee thru the line lock. Another option is just to make your own by attaching mini biner to a length of 1/8" bungee.
An unintended benefit is that this shaves 4g from each end of the suspension.
Now you can stay warm in your hammock as you use the line lock to adjust the UQ suspension. Be sure to attach the line lock to the corner of the UQ that is accessible from the hammock if you have attached bug netting.
Also using line locks, mini biner and bungee you can easily make an adjustable link to connect the side of your UQ to your structural ridgeline.
