Wonderful illustration (What tool do you use for these?) but it may mislead also. because the viewer assumes that it is uplift alone that was in short supply Certainly, putting in those fulcrum points increases the uplift. But, what only another radial view would show is that as importantly the relocation of fulcrums pulls the the corners of the UQ up and out
, to increase conformity of the top of the UQ with the bottom of the hammock.
There has been a separate problem of UQs bending in the middle, from their own weight and because the rails they are suspended from bend. The "triangle thingie" geometry due to HF member hangnout and further developed here begins to address the need for the UQ to be pulled out, center-to-side, not just up.
