    Mine is to new for mods, but when packing the BB I put the zipper side tie outs inside the hammock, and on the shelf side I turn the shelf inside out and tuck the tieout inside. Works like a champ.

    Great idea with the shelf tie. By too new for mods, do you mean you haven't found things you want to change, or you just don't want to mess with your new hammock? I had my whoopies installed the day I got my wbbb. I just finished a bunch of test hangs and my first overnight sleep and I think I want to do the tie out clip thing.

    Here's an older thread where I sewed a zippered pocket into a WBBB.

    I also simply remove the tie-outs from any hammock that has them.

    -Put the zip side pullout in the bird so they donít tangle

    -Zipper pulls from AHE.

    -With the zip side pull out, I have taken the shock cord off the bird and attached a mitten clip to the line that loops out from hammock. The clip can then be attached to the shock cord and adjusted from lying in the hammockÖ. Itís the line lock that does the adjustment and this sits above when there the mitten clip is attached to the line.

    -Triangle thingies help in getting the UQ in the right spot. Shug noted in one of his vids to make sure the UQ suspension on the right foot corner goes over your foot and that helps.

    -Adjust, re-adjust and admire how well a properly adjusted UQ can stay where you want it. I have my corner shock cords set so they donít need to be changed from hang to hang. The left shoulder and right foot lines are long and the opposites shorter so the UQ matches the angle Im lying.

    The first round of changes can be seen in the below link

    Great video! Quick question about removing the mini biner from the Triangle Thingies. Do you have to slide your UQ onto the hammock before attaching it to the trees now? Do you just leave your UQ on the hammock at all times? I'm just wondering how you would attach your UQ like that if the hammock was already up. Maybe I'm having a bit of a slow moment. Care to help?

    Thanks,
    I do need to slip the UQ onto the hammock once it is up. This one thing that made the whoopie convesion so right for me. I get the hammock up and set right and then lift the whoopie off the knot and slip the UQ on. It is a extra inclusion in the set-up but the spread that the triangle thingies is worth it to me.

    The pocket is a great idea! As nice as the shelf is, I too have been searching with my hand to find the small, pocket stuffies.

    Slipped one of those large colored rubber bands that is used to hold bunches of broccoli together (you hangers DO eat vegetables, right?) over one end of a suspension line strap. That way I know which end is the head, and which is the foot.

    Put a few snap fasteners on the edges of the two bottom layers, where they aren't sewn together. The snaps keep the two layers together, and keep the loose edges from getting caught in the bug-net zipper, and used to keep my under-pad from wiggling out, before I graduated to an under-quilt.

    Yes, just too new to have seen anything I want to change. I should clarify that I did add whoopies as soon as it was unboxed, but I do not consider that a mod so much as a necessity.

    I like Snoremachine's zipper pull mod.

    I had added a long (12") cord to the foot-end zipper pull to make it easier for me to reach, but this soulds like a better option.

    And I plan on the zip-side pull out mod when I have a chance.
