Reading about trying to reposition yourself by hanging on the ridgeline has somewhat spooked me because I have been concered about that. That got me to thinking, but before I do anything stupid I thought I would run it past others.
I am thinking of putting some haul ropes at the head end of my HH Safari. I thought of lashing them to the ridgeline but that seemed like it would defeat the purpose. I am not quite sure how to describe what I have in mind so I'll just give it a try. I have a large plastic button about 1.25" dia. I am planning to press that into the hammock from the outside and whip it off making a "knob" for lack of another word on the inside. (This is the idea behind the grommet-less guidelines on things like sil-nylon tarps if you follow the idea.) The haul line would then be tied to that knob and I can pull myself in easier... or so it would seem. There is substantial fullness of fabric at that point so I don't see the mod adding fabric stress.
Any feed back on this idea... either "go for it it might work".... "Been there done that... it works (or doesn't)" ... or "That's the dumbest idea I've ever read and here's why."
