OK, double sorry for taking so long. Anyway, here are a couple pics. The UCR is amsteel blue, the dark cord is the stock HH rope. I added a piece of shock cord to keep tension on the free end of the UCR but it doesn't appear to be necessary. I've laid in the hammock with no tension on the free end, like you see in the pics and it doesn't slip, and I weigh about 230 lbs. Its very easy to rig, 10' of amsteel blue (and if you don't like it just slide it off and your back to the stock HH set up). In the field I use a marlin spike - the biners are just used in the garage.
