So after hearing all the hype about triangle thingies I got to thinking… did I really need the fabric to achieve the same result? I found a great way to snug my UQ up the same way the triangles would but without the fuss of making them. I use an ENO Dbl with no net, so this method wouldn’t work for someone with a canopy, like say, a WBBB.
I hung my crowsnest the way I always do… by attaching the suspension to the gathered ends of my hammock. But then I attached 2 s-biners to the ridgeline and ran the UQ suspension through them as well, essentially changing the angle the same way the triangle thingies do. I noticed that the shock cord from the UQ was pulling the biners back towards the gathered ends (thus negating the usefulness) so I took a spare whoopie sling I had lying around and attached it to the biners. Now I can adjust the angle of the UQ suspension on the fly by adjusting the sling. All in all it works very well for me.
I attached this pic to “illustrate” what I did. I am definitely no Dejoha lol. But I think it gets the point across…
I’ll try to take some pics when I get home from the office tonight.
