Just finished one ginormous Hex Tarp for my bridge hammock. Unlike most of my projects this one seems to have come out right on the first shot.

However, I almost poked a hole in it when getting into/out of the hammock. When the spreader bar goes on a big angle from sitting on the edge of the hammock it is trying to poke a hole in my brand new tarp.

I am securing the ridgeline of the tarp on the whoopies used for the hammock using a pursik knot like HH does. I want to avoid the weight of tree huggers and a ridgeline dedicated to the trap and I wanted the tarp close to the hammock ridgeline for better coverage.

Any thoughts on how to deal with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
