    Lightbulb Floppy bug net, how to solve maybe?

    I have seen several posts where floppy bug nets have been mentioned.
    I am working on a new hammock with integrated bug net and during a test hang I got an idea how to solve the problem with a floppy bug net. I donít know if it have been done and maybe itís a crazy idea?

    Hang the hammock with the sides staked out and the bug net closed.
    Mark a X with pins symmetrical over the ridgeline.
    Take the bug net to the sewing machine and sew some elastic band on the bug net in the in the X shape. The elastic band must be stretched while sewing!
    The idea is when the elastic band is sewn in an X shape it will pull in 4 directions and the extra/floppy bug net will be pulled up in the X.

    Its only an idea no plans do to it.

    If there is nothing left to learn itís time to die.
    Live and learn.
