Replying to my own post, how gauche!
Thinking a bit more, I wonder if this issue with the quilt hook placement is only because the hammock is unloaded. Once I'm in the hammock and the UQ is forced into a curve around my body it's going to fit differently.
I'll likely never know as I do almost all of my backpacking solo, and I don't know how I can look while lying in the hammock.
