Edit....I think I will answer my own question!
I am going to get some cord locks for the 1/16th shock cord and use them for the bridge UQP's. But...You can still tell me your thoughts on the cord locks!!
I am not sure how each user will close his ends, I cut off, about 28-29 inches and added the 4 smallest chord locks I had in my stash of hardware as they don't need to be very big at all. But they work perfect. Yes, I would go ahead and add the 4 chord locks as users might not have any. Orginally was going to tie the excess shock chord to spreader bar and did, and then realized that the tighter I pulled the ends it didn't need any tieing and holds itself totally level even with top edge of hammock across the end. You might leave a bit on for those that want to rig the end their way. If you notice on the video,,as discussed with 2Q on the phone,,I used the 4 loops that are 84 inches apart to attach to corners and the shock chord in in the middle with chord lock is perfect in my opinion for either loosing the sides or tightening as tight as a user would want. This UQP is going to work perfect with my Top Sock/SEEP cover,,,absolutely perfect and will make a video of all my mods next few days when I get time again, showing the versatilitly of my setup for summer, 3 season or winter even. And the versatility of the hammock with/without a bug net as well. But,,When we hear from fallkniven and see what he thinks, I think with putting the 2 views together you have a absolute winner. I really like it and the fit and had the 50 degree Jarbridge on as didn't have time to dig the 20 degree UQ out and will on next video,,but its roomy enough for any quilt and like the ability to tighten it up here or there without it dragging the ground what so ever!!
