    Try tightening (shortening) the primary suspension. How much does the UQ lift your hammock when the hammock is empty? It should lift your hammock a good bit. I had the same issue with my DIY CDT UQ,...

    Yep, the pull handle is the way to go. I do the same thing with my setup. It makes the hitch extremely easy to undo.

    If you go with a rectangular-shaped box, you could hang a longer hammock- with the foot end hung higher than the head end, and still be able to sleep on a diagonal. That would eliminate the fabric...
