This is the way I'm doing them now except I'm going to try the tee nuts. It's not as elegant as using cordage but it's very functional and easy to use.
hppyfngy...I see you have a plug in the bar. Is that to keep stuff out or to beef up the eye bolt conection? Or both?
I also put nuts top and bottom for extra support and to just solidify everything.
Overkill. I may not do either on the newest builds. Then again I might. Overbuilding is better than underbuilding...
You know, in the spirit of science and experimentation.
The length I need to fit in is a little under 12'. My winter shelter is 8'x12'
It's just a ride and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love.
Otherwise you have a couple of options. You make the stand shorter and use a short hammock, or you could have the tripods as far apart as possible and let the pole extend beyond them. It's possible to do that but it's trickier. If you don't hang the hammock from just under the attachment points, the ridge pole is subject to a lot of flex. Many have had failures because of this, but it's possible to overcome, especially if you're not too heavy.
