    WBBB Ridgeline

    I just finished setting up my BB for an overnite hang in my backyard! I experienced more problems than usual trying to get the angles so that the ridgeline is taut! When I lay parallel to the ridgeline it's taut as shown on WB video, but whenI lay on the diagonal it loosens. Is this normal or should I make further adjustments?
    Thanks

    How loose? It will loosen due to the angle of the fabric from the RL being more gradual than that of your suspension, so sleeping at an angle vs straight you are effectively shorter. Which causes it to be looser at an angle than straight, but a small amount of looseness isn't bad.

    If you're comfortable, then no need to change anything. If not, go for a smaller hang angle to tighten it up.

    Sometimes my ridgeline is a little loose, sometimes it is tight. I have never had to go back and readjust the hang as I have always been comfortable. Your mileage may vary. Sometimes I find I do not have the foot end high enough to be comfortable and have to hang that end a little higher.

    Thanks! Ive only hung in my hammock 4 or 5 times & I guess Ive just not noticed it before!
    It was fairly loose so I did end up raising the foot a little more.I probably should have raised it even more because I kept sliding down in the hammock.Slept like a baby in spite of it!
