    underquilt on a Fronkey Style bugnet?

    Ok, pulled the trigger, bought Dutch's Fronkey bug net . Something I paid no thought to, how in the heck am I supposed to get the underquilt on? do I really have to pull it through the opening on the bottom and then hassle with getting the ends just right while fighting the bug net the entire time? Wow, if this is the only way, might have a brand new never used bug net for sale lol. Thanks guys!

    I hang my hammock and UQ, then put on the Fronkey bugnet. I use Dutch Whoopie Hooks, which makes it relatively easy.

    Forgive me if this sounds stupid, but how do you exactly get the bugnet on if you have the underquilt on too? does it just slip over the underquilt too?

    Disconnect one whoopie hook; slip bugnet over it, then reconnect whoopie hook. Go to the other end, disconnect whoopie hook, pull bugnet over, reconnect whoopie hook, and done. The UQ is attached to the hammock continuous loops so really plays no role in putting on the bugnet.

    I'm probably odd in that I have my uq on the outside, i.e. I tuck in the net. Still easy enough to get out.

    I don't think that's odd, I will try at least once this way just to give it a shot ! Thanks for the reply!

    I leave my UQ and bugnet on my hammock when I pack it up. That way I don't have to re-rig it everytime.

    I have no problem putting my UQ on the hammy with my Fronkey bugnet on.

    I can stand there and put the suspension over the hammock end knob on one side and clip in the other side to the CL. When standing next to the hammock just pull the net over you so you're standing there in the same place. Nothing changes since the whole thing surrounds you anyways.

    It's quite easy once you realize the open bottom is open when the net is on whether you're standing there or not. 2 times and you'll have no problems. The bottom "seals" against the UQ but remember it's not actually connected.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
