Had a little me time this morning and this is what I came up with on the mini spreaders on my fulltimer. The 3/4" dowels were shortened to 6" with 4" between the grooves. Two amsteels were made with loops on each end to feed thru the channels. Whoopies were made with a loop on one end which is attached to the dowel with overhand knots in the grooves. This allows the hammock to be removed from the suspension for laundering by loosing one loop and sliding the amsteel out of the channel.Initial test lays seem to be a better lay then my first version. Pip's I too had a time getting the tightened clove hitches loose so on this version just used overhand knots.
