Make your ridge line where it runs through the head end ,instead of tied permanently at that point,then back to about where your hips are when in the hammock.
I used a small ring,has to be strong enough to hold up to your body weight pulling on it, in my survivor at the head end for the ridge line to flow through. The foot end remains permanent.
when you run the ridge line through the ring,start pulling it back toward the foot end,to get the longer ridge line you either change out the entire line ,or do what I did, just tie another piece onto it to lengthen it. Make it long enough to be 1.5 times as long as origional setting.
I knew when mine was back to origional position when the binding knots were at the ring,but you could mark it with a permanent marker for easy repositioning.
Tie the end of the ridge line back to the first with a taut line hich,this gives you a ridge line that can be tightened, or loosened by sliding the knot back and forth.
Slide it all the way to the head end and the ridge line is now so loose it doesnt exist in the way anymore ,and the bug net will colapse into the hammock like a second layer. This makes chair mode more confy.(mine was bottom entry your zip model has no need to go past the ridge line part)
Second part of this mod,if you have a bottom entry , thats really cool is with it colapsed,you can flip the hammock over laying on the bottom part of the hammock,having no screen above you. If you lie on top of the screen it waffles your skin,very uncomfy.
The feel in that position totally changes the lie of the hammock to a small travel hammock. Good luck
