I recently made a few mods to my Grand Trunk Ultralight. Just to remind people, this is a $20 hammock.
1. Dynaglide whoopie slings. (double looped in the channel)
2. Adjustable Dynaglide ridge line.
3. Cut the bag off, and made a black bishop bag out of it.
Still playing with ways to attach the ridge line. Any suggestions?
To cut the bag off, there is a seam that frees it from the hammock without interfering with the hem on the hammock. I used a seam ripper and carefully ran it up the seam. Pretty simple.
Then I injected a buttonhole on the thread injector, snipped a little hole and ran the head end suspension through the hole.
9.9oz Hammock, suspension, and ridge line. I think Ill use straps with an injected loop, and trail sticks for toggles. (just straps, no biners, or toggles to keep it ultra light)
