    Not so here with an NX-250 and a Tropical 2. Product development, I guess.

    For your NX-250 without tie-outs, if you have any hesitation in sewing to the hammock body, loops can be very safely and reversibly sewn to the heavy polyester webbing stubs that are there to capture the rod-ends. They're a little far apart, so adjust to match or meet the loops on your UQ.

    I think I'll add a small 'biner to the entry side tie out, between the shock cord and the ring. It's a bit more weight, I know, but I never worry too much about that anyway. Thanks for all the great replies and ideas everyone! :-)

    a mitten hook or a micro biner are both very light

    I guess I don't quite see the point of the quick disconnect. Unhooking for breakfast in the hammock makes sense I suppose for those cold winter mornings, but you will still need to get out to re-hook it since the tie out will have fallen to the ground. I don't think is is a big hassle to get up and unhook it from the tie out stake. It is just looped over.

    weaver - The quck release is most useful to me when I have to enter from the head end. As I bend over to go under the tarp, I can just unhook the tie out, sit in the hammock, then reach down, pick it up and re-hook it. Often the stake end of the tie out is outside the tarp, so to unhook at the stake I would have to get down on all fours to reach it. This way I stay a bit cleaner and it is just easier.
    It really is just a convenience. One could just pull up on the shock cord and go under, but I always worry that I'll tear it or pull it off the stake or something.
    So I made this little improvement and my hammock experience is just a bit better.
