Inspired by This Video and This Thread I modified a set of Elephant Trunks. I'm a big fan of the ET's but like I said in the video they are a little time consuming to adjust especially if you hook directly to your hammock and don't use whoopies. I've only recently started using whoopies and my wife still doesn't... Anywho, it seems to be very secure. I didn't try to use a trail stick to see how it would hold up in place of the bar. The aluminum bar is just a tent peg cut in half.
I would also like to apologize for the focus and framing on some of the video, its a new camera and my first time making a video with it. Please bear with me as I work thru these technical difficulties.
