Might take a look at that. The little pearl button goes on the head end I believe. It has been several months since I have had it out.
I'm lucky in that respect. My Climashield "Yeti" has a zipper that is on the bottom (ground side) of the foot end. Despite that, I think one time, in a hurry, I put it on upside down. Soon I'm thinking "you know, this thing just really is not as good as I thought!"
Luckily I finally got out to see what the heck the problem was. Seeing the zipper up near the hammock instead of closer to ground quickly cleared up what the problem was. User error, the problem was me!
BTW, word to the wise: it does not work worth a **** if put on either upside down, or foot/head end reversed, or both!
