    how i hang my uq asymmetrically on asym hammocks

    this may be not new or even a good idea, but it is simple. i tested this for seven-eight nights & it works (for me ). hope this will help someone and would like to hear your thoughts!

    below is a photo of the head end of the suspended uq (mw3c) only showing the left side shock cord to be longer (than the right side one) giving more coverage on the left (left shoulders if lying on the back).
    at the foot end the left side shock cord is short and the right side one is long, giving more coverage on the right (footbox).



    after this, tighten or relax everything as usual and/or as needed...
    cheers!

    I use this same method and it really does help hold the quilt in that diagonal position and also my quilt has cord locks in the center of the end channels so I am able to tighten them in a way that help with the fit in the diagonal.

    i like ascii art ;-) i am aiming to skew uq coverage to this:
    _____
    /____/ instead of the usual rectangular
    _____
    |____| shape by larks heading the shock cord (the uq suspension) off its center. hope it makes sense seriously tho, i can make some photos if you still need them...
