Just a thought - could you use bungee cable instead of paracord for your prussic and instead of attaching to the tail of the connector use a prussic over the end of the bury, thus increasing the pressure on the suspension line before it exits the bury. You'd need a stopper knot on the tail right next to the exit point. I think there have been people on HF who experimented with increasing the constriction of a bury with external wraps. You would gain (actually lose
) a couple of inches of length that way. You would still need to tie a prussic on the suspension line with the other end of the bungee loop. Bungees make nice tight prussics, so you might have more difficulty adjusting he hammock position.
Or ... a Solomon bar out of bungee cable to slide over the constrictor. That would
