I hear ya, I tried a 2" opening and it ended up sliding down then ripping out. After that I sewed the end up most of the way - but no ribbon or cord to re-enforce the hole. My hammock is channel end so it was an issue.
How easy for you is it to open the net and get out with the hook there? I keep thinking of trying it, but I also picture myself at 0200 trying to get out in a hurry for nature and unable to get the hook out of the way.
