When it's tight, it doesn't go anywhere during the night. I had similar problems with the synthetic model that had an adjustable suspension. The new KISS method is much better IMO, but the lines do have to be tight.
it is just some really small biners. To me it is easier to clip them on since that would keep the shockcord on the yeti in one place. Plus I after I get the hammock hung I don't want to have to undo it to slide the straps thru the Yeti shockcord.
The cords were tight almost to tight against me as it pulled the sides of the hammock in on me. Who knows I may have put it on wrong
